Tamatsukuriyu Shrine, Matsue

4.0
Popular in recent years among women, Tamatsukuriyu Shrine is said to have match-making powers and the ability to grant wishes. Upon entering the Shinto shrine, you have the option to buy a stone. If you do this, take the stone to the much larger "wishing stone" and press your stone against it whilst pouring water over them both. After doing this, write your wish on two pieces of paper; one remains at the shrine, while the other comes home with and your stone inside its own decorative bag. Our Matsue trip planner makes visiting Tamatsukuriyu Shrine and other Matsue attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Tamatsukuri Onsen is full of beautiful little corners like this. Well worth exploring on foot in any season.
  • Calm and peace
  • It was a shrine that stood quietly in the surrounding nature, and it was a place where i could feel the history. It was worth the trouble to stop by.

  • It was a shrine where I felt the history. In the midst of all this, the cuteness of the dog made me feel happy.

  • It was a light rain, but it was quiet and it was like going back in time to the old days. I also received a wish ball and was allowed to pray.
