Kanayama Shrine

Kanayama Shrine

This shrine is located within the grounds of Wakamiya Hachimangu in Kawasaki-ku. The sacred body is a metal phallus, also called “Kanamara-sama” ("god of the devilish metal penis"), and is believed to be a guardian deity for both giving birth and illnesses that affect the lower body. A unique mikoshi is paraded at the Kanamara Festival in spring.
