Itakiso Jinnja Shrine

The main deity enshrined here is Itakeru-no-mikoto, a God of Wood. The
legend in Japanese mythology says that he covered the whole country with
trees. This shrine is surrounded by lots of trees even today. The people
engaging in lumbering business often come to visit this shrine to pray
for the wealth of their business and their safety. It is also believed
that walking through a hole of a big truck of the cedar tree on display
inside the building will protect people against disasters and bad fortunes.
The area is also famous for bamboo plants. It is located 17 minute train
ride from JR Wakayama Station and 5 minute walk from the station nearby
called Idakiso.
