Kibutsuhiko no Mikoto, believed to be the figure that inspired the famous Japanese legend of Momotaro, is enshrined here. It is said the shrine was built on the site where Mikoto’s house once stood (main building). The shrine’s Heian cedar, believed to be more than 1,000 years old, has become the symbol of Kibitsuhiko-jinja Shrine. The precinct’s Koyasu-jinja Shrine is said to bless visitors with children and safe childbirth. The statue of Momotaro in the parking area is also a popular spot for photographs. Be sure to give your luck a boost by purchasing red and white good luck charms for marriage or peach-shaped charms for protection against misfortune! These charms also make great souvenirs!
