Overview
More
Hakuto Shrine was the setting of the myth of the White Rabbit of Inaba, mentioned in Japan’s traditional creation myth, the Kojiki. Legend holds that the powers of the shrine offered relief from burns and other skin conditions. Mitarashi Pond Along the roadside of the grounds is the Mitarashi Pond, where the White Rabbit of Inaba was said to have washed his wounds and taken healing. The waters remain level, never swelling or declining, throughout the year. Myth of the White Rabbit of Inaba In what is considered Japan’s first love story, the White Rabbit was the matchmaker for King Ookuni and Princess Hachigami. In more recent times, fittingly as this story’s birthplace, Hakuto was designated as ‘the holy ground for lovers’ in 2010.

Can visit on the way if it’s on your route! Rabbits are cute and the shrine is traditional. Take only around 10-15 mins walk around.

This shrine is to wish for love. There are lots of cute rabbit stone statue here. It is also facing the coastal line. So you can also see beautiful sun set here.

Hakuto Shrine, the Shrine of the Rabbit, brings good love fortune. A small shrine and a good stop after long hours of driving. Unfortunately it was closed on that day. Spent 30 mins at the highway stop and got some yummy fish cakes

I came here by car that we saw from street. We didn't know what's good for this shrine. But we are happy to pray together! 彼氏と訪れたので一緒にお参りできたお礼をしました。神社までは少し歩くのでその途中も白兎がいっぱいいて楽しめます!
