Takara Hachiman Shrine

                                                                                                                                 HOME 

 

Have you ever seen a wild white boar?

The wild white bore at the Shrine has function as both guardians and messengers

for the deities at Shinto shrines.

It’s a white boar! A white boar was found by chance in Takarayama, where Takara

Hachiman Shrine stands. They gradually grew in number, and a family of 6 lives here

at present.

The boars are pretty large, and you may be taken aback at first. But if you watch the

cute behavior of the boars trying to get that bread out of your hand, you’ll forget you

were afraid of them. The white boars are thought to bring happiness. After visiting the

shrine, you should ask the cute boars for some good-luck blessings.
