Akagi Shrine

Akagi Shrine sits on the eastern shore of Lake Onuma in Gunma prefecture. This is the main “Akagi Shrine” out of the 300 sub-shrines throughout Japan. It is officially called Daido Akagi-jinja, and its vermillion bridge and main hall are eye-catching. Akaghi-hime princess is enshrined here, and it is said that women who pray here will give birth to a beautiful child. The omamori, or lucky charm, is popular for how cute it looks.
