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.

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!

Really nice and a bit different shrine. The rabbits are so cute! The coastal area is nice. The visit to this shrine is recommended for those who love to discover something new in common things.

Small, attractive shrine just in from coastal highway. 15-minute visit. Not particularly interesting if you've been to Jinja before.
