Jishu Shrine in Kiyomizu Temple

Ohkuni-nushi (meaning Great Land Master) is a divinity in Japanese Shinto and a god for match making also.

Ohkuni-nushi is first mentioned in the very famous Japanese myth "White Rabbit of Inaba," and here is a statue of Rabbit in the shrine!

It is said that the Jishu Shrine gives many profits besides match making. So please stop by when you visit Kiyomizu Temple.

When the Tanabata festival ended, it started to rain again. It's still rainy season.
