Onokorojima Shrine


Onokoroshima Shrine is a shrine dedicated to Izanagi and Izanami from Japanese mythology and has existed on Awaji Island since ancient times. The shrine is known and loved by the local people for its magnificent vermilion-lacquered Otorii (Grand Gate), which stands 21.7 meters high. The shrine is widely worshipped as a god of marriage and safe delivery, and many people visit the shrine to pray for safe delivery, the first visit to the shrine to pray for the growth of their children, and Shichi-Go-San mairi (pilgrimages to the shrine for the seven-five-three-year period). For those who have wishes related to match-making and child-rearing, it is recommended to pick up an amulet at this shrine.
