Overview

This shrine is known for prayers involving marriage and warding off evil. There is an exhibition space dedicated to the Prefectural-Designated Important Intangible Folk Cultural Property known as Ouma-Nagashi or “Sinking the Horse”. This is a ritual in which a straw horse is made to transfer bad luck and then eventually transferred to a boat for a ride out into the harbor.
