Fukashi-jinja enshrines Ume-no-Tenjin (plum tree deity), a god associated with tests and examinations.
During examination season, many students can be seen visiting the shrine with their hands in prayer, asking for success in their exams.
If you are preparing for an examination or some sort, paying a visit to the shrine and writing down your withes on "Ema (a wooden plaque)" is strongly recommended.
