Wakidenomiya Main Shrine

While its official name is Wakiniimasu Amenofukime Shrine, it is known by its shorter name, Wakidenomiya Shrine. According to temple legend, the temple was originally built in Watarai-gun, Ise-kuni (present day Mie Prefecture) in the year Tenpyo Jingo 2 (766), and was subsequently transferred to its current location.

Farmers of the area have long worshipped the deity of this temple as a bringer of rain. The Igomori Festival, a parish event held since the middle ages, is designated as an Important Intangible Cultural Property of Japan.
