Travel Guide - Tamatsukuriyu-jinja Shrine (Wishing Stone)


Tamatsukuriyu-jinja Shrine enshrines Tamanooya-no-Mikoto, the god who is said to have created Yasakani-no-Magatama, one of the three Imperial Regalia of Japan.
The shrine is a popular spiritual place because of its famous Wishing Stone, a naturally formed stone ball. Visitors can make a wish as they pour water on the stone, and then take home a small with-granting stone as a souvenir.
