What people are saying:

When the capital was moved safely in 794, according to the edict of Emperor Kanmu, a shrine was established in all directions in order to guard the king's castle. Okazaki Shrine was one of them. Because it was located in the east, it was also called the King of Toten. It enshrines the god of marriage of Susuzhan Mingzun and Qi Daeda Himing, and the god of three females, five males and eight pillars. In the Muromachi period, it was rebuilt by the shogun Ashikaga Yoshimura, and the relationship with the shogunate is profound. Hare inhabits the shrine area, and it is said that the prolific rabbit is the messenger of the clan god. There are also many believers who are deeply believed in the god of security and marriage and pray for doom.
