Okuni Shrine

The foremost shrine of the Enshu district, this is an ancient shrine in the engi style enshrining Okuninushi no Mikoto. The deity has been worshipped since ancient times as a god of weddings and good fortune with money. The twelve-part bugaku dance maintained here, first dedicated to the deity here in 701, is registered as a National Important Intangible Folk Cultural Assets. The Taishaden Hall built in the taishazukuri style is surrounded by an ancient forest. At the sides of the approach to the shrine 130 species of 400,000 Japanese irises are planted, and the shrine enjoys many visitors during the iris season.

There are about 1,000 cherry and maple trees planted in the precincts, with many visitors coming to see them in season.
