Yaegaki Shrine, Matsue

4.4
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. Put Yaegaki Shrine and other Matsue attractions into our Matsue trip itinerary planning website , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Very nice Powerspot. And a special form of a omamori 😉
  • A must see spot when you come to Matsue. Plenty of parking and there is a cafe down the street. You can wish for love.
  • You must visit this place with your girlfriend. First visit a office in the shrine and get the fortune telling paper, then go to the mirror pond. You can float the paper on the pond and see if you can get along with your impirtant person
  • A typical shrine Board mural depicting 6 God rose of the oldest shrine and Japanese poem of the Japan's oldest shrine enshrined ssanoonomicot yaegaki shrine (EITA's kijinn) and inatahime, all of marriage and that is. You can see in the storerooms of treasures from plate painting already paying 200 yen at Holy Spirit Award. God has reality such as you have never seen painted statues, as if straight animated facial expressions and eyes were rigid body.    We do not see much better, no one had ventured out. With that mysterious space of a forest of Saku, woman's famous Mirror Lake, located beyond the main it was absolutely breathtaking. Significant just looking Cedar high sucking the air and sparkling in the Sun and the crystal clear water, such as purified whole body illusion. This is the first time where such a calm filled the heart is calm.
