4.1
#4 of 43 in Sightseeing in Matsue
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

Where to stay in Matsue

With its canals, rivers, and lakes central to the look and everyday life of Matsue, many visitors arrive wanting a view of the water. And they're certainly in luck, because the city has placed its primary accommodations up close to the waterways. Traditional "ryokan" (guesthouses) with "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) sit to the north of the river, while a good number of basic hotels lie to the south. Look around the countryside to the south for clusters of retreats in scenic areas, including traditional ryokan and modern hotels with onsite onsen.

  • For the Office Lady was much blunt from the beginning. Frustrated but few visitors on weekdays, I quarrel? Much as I think. Her husband also said that was not done. It is good to take because they had both stone and nokyo-sho was a shrine I wanted to go, but still annoying. It is better to me is the shrine officials, but that if no table. There is nokyo-sho type post only.

  • But even more glad you heartily thought I wish stones with the true stone, to the charm of their own, very good 🎵. A (point one) to achieve on his own wish in their character, so I think better.
