  • Gold konkai Komyo-ji Temple near the shrine. That's attracting the faith as a baptized child of God since ancient times, was seen a rabbit sculpture in the environment, particularly water basin at rabbit statue is gaining popularity. Please rubbed the belly of a rabbit at the water basin.

  • Okazaki shrine next to stay ahead of return from eating out, saw the look in the dark, it's without. Normally, head forwards haiden and gate. I! Something is noticed different things! It's random, "rabbit" riddled with! KOMA rabbit Lantern design also must be "guardian", and as well as inviting nursery. It is was a shrine to Deus Ex Machina, rabbit! Why rabbit as a "prolific", believe they were.

  • Green, it was a very quiet atmosphere. Tickets to use city bus one day is never been up to now, this first visit. Bus stop very close and convenient. Within the rabbit who is new as is, but very pretty. Women recommend it is.

  • Known as the rabbit Shinto shrine. Cute, rabbit, such as amulets, votive motifs like the rabbit, of course, Nice in. It is, but couldn't finish the visit pleasant. Shinto priest is called "nokyo-sho" must understand means you tell the answer. And subways write nokyo-sho saying I do not know what I mean, but not appreciated but not. And if I was watching the face "rabbit 御籤" two or so "do not select". Hope you choose words, done from a priest in any way but I'm thinking of the worshippers, where you can visit the good is not. If the think it untoward to Office when there were times when visiting, there is a border.

  • My imagination would I feel prosperity symbolized by PLAYBOY rabbit says, with sacred black granite rabbit regards prosperity, such as guardians of the faith of the silhouette that is deformed? Silhouettes from the front and back are especially... It has it's blessing. Amulet taste good.

  • The shrine is dedicated to two gods Okazaki: Susanoo-no-Mikoto and Kushinada-hime. The gods brakasochetanija and childbirth. Statues that guard the shrine of evil spirits-bunnies. This animal was chosen because they always bring great offspring. Okazaki Jinja, shrine dedicated to two kami, Susanoo-no-Mikoto and Kushinada-hime, gods of marriage and easy childbirth. The guardians of the shrine are rabbits, selected because of their well known ability to produce many descendants. Okazaki Shrine is one of the four shrines for the purpose of protecting Heiankyo (ancient capital of Japan). The shrine was built when the capital was transferred from Nara to Kyoto in 794 AD. The main building of OKazaki Shrine was rebuilt in 869 after damage from a fire. On that occasion, the new gods were brought from Himeji city in Hyogo prefecture and enshrined at the shrine. According to the Japanese classic, the Heian Monogatari, Okazaki Shrine was one of the 41 government shrines. Okazaki Shrine has served as a shrine for safe birth since 1178, and the Ujiko-sai festival is held every October in celebration. The rabbit is considered a helper spirit of Okazaki Shrine. This is because many rabbits lived in the mountain behind the shrine. There are many sculptures of rabbits on the precincts (they are seen on pedestals of guardian dogs, in dedicatory lanterns, and above doorways). Notably, there is a black granite statue of a rabbit in the washbasin. This rabbit statue is for the believer who wishes to have a baby. Okazaki Shrine is also a shrine for marriage. This is because the famous heroic god Susano Ono Mikoto, who is enshrined at the shrine, slayed a demon to marry the goddess Kushi Inada Hime. For these reasons, many couples hold their wedding at Okazaki shrine
