The oldest shrine in Kanazawa.
The shrine is said to be built about 1500 years ago. It is also said to be for the people who want to find their soulmates, which attracts many female visitors. That is not the only reason why this shrine is so popular among women, however: it is a pretty mascot called "Kima-chan" with a Japanese traditional hat, and cute charms and emas (good luck placard). The charm has a polka-dot pattern which means “all is well.”
