Kifune is an old shrine that worships a dragon god who controls water. It has had a long history of believers from ancient times. The god enshrined here is also worshipped as a god of marriage, hence many young people come here to have their relationships blessed. Some noteworthy spots are the "Okumiya," the inner sanctum of the shrine up along the Kibune river; "Amagoi no taki," a waterfalls within the shrine precincts; and on the west side is "funaishi," a rock in the shape of a boat.
