Goou Jinja Shrine



The enshrined deities here are Wake no Kiyomaro and his sister, Wake no Hiromushi. When Wake no Kiyomaro was saved from calamity by three hundred boars, his injured legs were healed, and from this story people started to worship the deity at the shrine as a god that can protect legs and loins. The shrine is also famous for its boar collection.
