Religious Site
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. Put Tamatsukuriyu Shrine and other Matsue attractions into our Matsue tourist route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Tamatsukuri Onsen Tamayu made shrine is Magatama was used in the ancient festivals, etc. "Jade," and Tamatsukuri Onsen area "Kami no Yu" as to have faith comes from, as it is built. Distribution and jade made bath shrine near Izumo ball by Mark tamasaku ruins which starts at the end of the Yayoi period in, were placed at some of the artifacts is provided nationally. Also your God ōkuninushi and small name Mikoto and transfer assistance to Dogo Onsen in Iyo topographies, that shrine to feel redemption has been. The "wish stone", and Izumo yaegaki shrine as well as "marriage" of blessings as a shrine has become a popular spot to young women. Even true stones and wish and pray for the same matchmaking combinations are specific to each shrine. Therefore worship is different, but apparently after the shrine visit and see the two cult 4 applause one seem to have been a cult. Jade made bath shrine two worship 2 clap one? and do not understand worship manners as a cult, so rude I think. Please pray for marriage, "heart of man" but looks good. To make such observations and feel also visit aren't fun.

  • 玉作湯神社, 玉造溫泉的精神領地, 擁有結姻緣的強大神力。 玉作湯神社祭奉勾玉之神、玉造溫泉之神與湯姬大明神 可以自己製作獨有的護身符:成願石,但是這次真的太冷,加上有一點點趕時間,所以沒有自己製作! 雖然神社不大,小巧卻獨有一份神聖莊重的氛圍, 加上這幾天的雪真得非常大,半山腰的神社只有參拜的路是可以行走的 厚厚的積雪讓整個玉作湯神社看起來格外的靜謐  more »

  • Very nice shrine Shinto and quiet, with a somewhat different architecture if we look at the stairs that connect the main room with the rear building. There's even a dohjo or ring of sumo in the grounds of the sanctuary!

  • As part of the matchmaking power spot is a popular shrine. Granting wishes wish stones hit the steps, blessed with a true stones at the Office, said. True stone is so "rather than choosing your stone, stone has been selected, all different colors and shapes!
