This sacred stone 'Iwakura' behind the main shrine building, has become a popular spot that is admired by celebrities. Its sacred water 'Manai no mizu' has divine grace for happy long life, and many people visit to draw the water.
Manai no mizu' water has a good balance of minerals so some cooks take it back. Bottles are sold, you can visit without preparing anything.

Find Some Hiding Hearts! A Shrine Of Matrimony

At the foot of the mountain in Kameoka, this shrine is said to be the strongest god for matrimony in Japan. There's a husband-wife stone knotted by a red rope, and it seems to give us a divine help. If you can find some hiding heart shapes, you may be able to achieve your love!
It's very old shrine with 1300 years history. The shrine building constructed by Takauji Ashikaga is designated as an important cultural asset. Its cherry blossom in spring and fall foliage in autumn are famous.
