Tamatsukuriyu Shrine, Matsue

(4.2/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Soothing laid-back atmosphere. Buying makes you feel you must buy a true stone at the entrance, but is OK. Don't just buy and enjoy shrine it is unlikely.

  • 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!
