Deity of Kurama achieving peace in the capital with medicine
Yuki Jinja Shrine was established to the north of the imperial palace by the order of Emperor Suzaku in 940, who wished for halcyon days of peace for the capital that had suffered from natural disasters and turmoil in those days. The deity, Yuki Daimyojin, that had been originally enshrined in the imperial palace was transferred to its current position. Here are the enshrined deities, Oanamuchi no Mikoto and Sukunabikona no Mikoto, Gods of Creation, medical Treatment, and worshipped as Gods for matchmaking and business. Komainu guardian statue is holding a puppy which has a very unusual shape and attracts visitors, and many people who wish for conception and smooth childbirth, visit this shrine and receive a belly band.
