Story & Recommendation
God of sake breweries spiritually supports the people of Japan
At the far west end of Shijo dori is one of the oldest shrines in Kyoto, Matsunoo Grand Shrine, or as locals call it "Matsuo-san." Many locals, visitors, and business people visit the shrine to pray. Known as a place to worship for the success of sake production, the shrine is visited often by sake producers and locals for the spiritual support the shrine provides. There is a section of the shrine in the parking area where people can pray for cars and safety on the road. People pray for happiness, health, and prosperity at several alters inside the shrine. Couples have Japanese style weddings at this shrine and they offer several different wedding plans. Beautiful gardens and the surrounding scenery of nature give visitors a peaceful moment where they can forget about any worries they may have.
