This is an ancient shrine surrounded by a solemn atmosphere.
In this shrine, which attracts the worship of those praying to conceive a child, smaller shrines are lined out in the shrine grounds and there are a number of yin-yang stones.
The ‘Onda Festival’ which is held on the first Sunday of February is famous for its oddness. A heavy love scene acted out by a tengu (long-nosed goblin) and an otafuku (a plain homely woman) puts a smile on peoples’ faces.
