Shrine to Bring Romance Standing in a Secluded Alley
No one knows when it was founded. The legend says that Yasuda Sakubei, the retainer of Akechi Mitsuhide, founded this shrine here. It has been worshipped as the protector from fire and guardian of romance since Edo period, attracting many female worshippers. In early Showa period, many entertainers including Ichimura Uzaemon, the kabuki actor, were counted among the worshippers of this shrine.
