About
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.

Under the Sanin Campaign, Tottori prefecture is offering for foreign tourists a three-hour taxi drive with only 2000 yen which is available right in the information center of Tottori Station. Driving and guiding with warm Japanese hospitality will help to visit almost all tourist destinations of the prefecture. This prefecture has many beautiful places yet uncovered to strangers. It includes almost everything from a beautiful coastline to ruined castles, snowy mountains to the vigilant fish market. Tottori Sand-dune, resembling desert, is the largest in Japan and a traveler can adventure Camel Riding.

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

The legend behind the shrine and the small rabbit statues at the sides of the pathway leading to the shrine make Hakuto Shrine unique. As it gets dark, the pathway is illuminated with lamp beneath each of the small rabbit statues so it is quite a view.

Hakuto-jinja (White Rabbit Temple) is a must go for couples, or hopeful singles. Also known as a famous place to pray for "en musubi" (to have a lasting relationship or to meet a romantic partner), it is a Shrine dedicated to Okuninushi who helped a white rabbit grow back his fur after being bit by a shark.
