Miyajidake Shrine


The Shimenawa is the biggest in Japan.

Surprisingly, weight is 3ton, with 2.6m diameter and 11m length. Shimenawa is the thick, twisted,

straw rope. It was believed in ancient days that a Shimenawa had the power to keep off evil sprits,

so many objects connected with Shinto Shrines decorated with Shimenawa.


Miyajidake Shrine is primarily dedicated to Empress Jingu and attracts over 2 million

worshippers a year who pray for commercial success, good luck, and to ward off adversity.
