©AFLO, Nobuo Kawaguchi
This shrine represents the province of Izumo, the so called ”Land of Gods.” In the Shinto tradition, the month of October is called ”Kannazuki (the month when there are no gods.” In the province of Izumo, however, this month is called ”Kamiarizuki (the month of the gods).” It was said that all the gods of Japan congregate annually at Izumo. The shrine is also known as the deity of matchmaking.
