Scenery & Seal of Tsurugane Shrine
Good Luck for Beauty
Tsurugane Shrine worships Jimyoin, the daughter of the top picture’s Shimadzu lord, Yoshihiro. Jimyoin is said to be a very beautiful. tendere-hearted and charitable princess. I wish if I could see her in my own eys. 🙂 It is said that a woman can gain phisical and mental beauty, thanks to the good luck power of Jimyoin. When I visited a shrine, a new couple came to the shrine to report their marriage in traditional Japanese wedding style. I took their video. (You can see them at the almost end of the video, sorry for my poor video skills.(

- Those who want to brush up their beauty should visit the shrine because it has a good luck for beauty. Many tourists are satisfied with the brief introduction of their guide and don’t to make a prayer.
- The shrine is located between Senganen Park and Shoko Shuseikan Museum. It is good to make a visit to the shrine when you move between those two spots.
