Juzo Shinto Shrine Ubuya重蔵神社 産屋
"Once a shelter used to store portable shrines for events, the structure was rebuilt as this Shinto shrine in 2015 due to the deterioration of the old building. An ""ubuya"" is a room in which women give birth. The shrine is derived from an event held in August in which a god and goddess are wed, build an ""ubuya,"" and give birth to a child god. There is a large log pillar in the center of the shrine and inscribed at its base are the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac. It is said that your wish will be granted if you stand on your own sign, circle the pillar clockwise, and pray at the altar."

Ishikawa Main Areas
Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
