Story & Recommendation
Cherry blossom festival for good relations
Enmusubi (praying for a good relationship and a marriage) Cherry Blossom Festival (in Japanese, Enmusubi Kigan Sakura Matsuri) is held at Jishu Jinja Shrine, is located a short walk up the stairs from Kiyomizu-Temple main hall. Jishu Jinja Shrine is popular because it enshrines a god of good relationships. Okuninushi no Mikoto, and marriage. It has been believed that gods reside in cherry trees, and the blooming of cherry blossoms is a blessing of the gods. Enmusubi Cherry Blossom Festival is held to celebrate the beautiful full-bloom cherry blossoms and to bring good relations to those who visit the shrine. Needless to say, flower viewing is a popular spring event in Japan, but it is said that the Enmusubi Cherry Blossom Festival was the first one of its kind in Japan. You can also enjoy traditional performances like haiku-poem readings and music, so please enjoy a traditional cherry blossoms festival at the historical shrine of Jishu Jinja and receive the blessing from the gods who reside in the cherry blossoms.
