Shizuiwaya Shrine

Less known power spot

In autumn, visitors are welcomed by brilliant autumn foliage, after climbing up the main shrine approach. Large rocks dot along the path which leads to Misen mountain rising behind the shrine. Each rock has its own name. The group of rocks is registered as a prefectural natural monument, as it is an artwork made by the power of nature. Among all, the 10-meter tall Kagamiiwa (mirror-shaped rock) is believed to be an object of worship. It is said that your dream will come true after you thread small paper strings through holes and tie them in a knot.
