Yaegaki Shrine, Matsue
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Visit the site of Japan's first wedding, Yaegaki Shrine, a Shinto shrine popular with those looking for "En-musubi," the spiritual force that brings couples together. Dedicated to the gods of marriage and matchmaking, the shrine's grounds reveal many phallic symbols and carved wooden statues, and a pond where couples place pieces of paper in the hope that it will give them a long and fruitful marriage. An artwork depicting the enshrined Princess Inata covers a wall of the attached treasure house; painted onto Japanese Cypress, the mural has been considered one of the oldest shrine wall murals in the country.
