In the legend "Yamata-no-Orochi", after slaying the eight-headed serpent, the deity Susanoo and his new bride, Kushi-inada-Hime, made this shrine their home and it has therefore come to be known as the shrine of happy marriages.
In the shrine grounds you can find the "Mirror Pond", which Kushi-inada-Hime used as a mirror.
There is a custom of placing a coin on a piece of paper and floating it on the surface of the pond.
The length of time the paper takes to sink is said to signify your luck in love.
