Shukuin Tongu

The beginnings as a shrine of Shukuin Tongu lie in 1816, as the midpoint on the ritual procession of the kami from Sumiyoshi Taisha. A shrine from Otori Taisha was also later relocated to Shukuin Tongu, and so two kami are now worshipped here. Annual events include exchanges with Otori Taisha on July 31 and Sumiyoshi Taisha on August 1, during which a famous ritual is performed at the Iigai moat in the grounds.

Legends about this moat state that a mythical bead with the power to call the tides was buried here, and now it never fills with water no matter how much rain falls.
