If you lift it and it's light, your wish will come true!? The sacred rock of Imamiya-jinja Shrine

"Imamiya-jinja Shrine" is associated with Otama no kata (Keisho-in), who was a daughter of the town of Nishijin and became the real mother of Tsunayoshi, the fifth Tokugawa shogun.

It enshrines the god of good luck and good health and longevity, and it is said that it brings benefits of Tamanokoshi along with Otama no kata.

After visiting the main shrine, you will want to try the "Aho-kashi-san" of the divinity stone (Kamiuraishi).

It is also called "Heavy pumice (I feel weak.)" and your wish will come true if you feel light when you lift the stone.

First, lightly hit the stone with the palm of your hand three times.

And when you lift it up, um ...... it's so heavy!?

Then, please put your wish into it, stroke 3 times with the palm of your hand and lift it.

If it becomes lighter, Tamanokoshi may not be a dream.

Also, it is said that if you stroke the weak part of the body with the hand that stroked the stone, the recovery will be accelerated.


Imamiya-jinja Shrine holds the "Handmade flea market" on the first day of every month.

Why don't you go out and look for a bargain with a light step?
