Sake Shrine, with benefits for marriage


This is a rare shrine in the whole country which gets its name from salmon (sake) since it is said that the sea god changes into the form of a salmon when he comes. On the grounds there are salmon mounds and every year in December, the Kenkeisai (salmon festival) is held to pray for abundant harvest and good health. Also, salmon ema (prayer placards often shaped like a horse) are offered.
