Takeo Shrine

You walk through the bamboo woods behind the main hall of Takeo Shrine and come out into an open space to find the Great Camphor Tree of Takeo, which, after the long years of its life of 3,000 years, is still vigorously living for eternity. Its solemn and stately energy will surely give you an awe.

On the shrine site are two sacred trees intertwined at their roots and branches as if by god’s magnificence. They are believed to bring good fortune for love, marriage, business and finance and attract many visitors.

It is also believed that tying a Horai bell purchasable at the shrine to the strings hanging from the sacred trees and praying for it will make you even more fortunate and visitors dedicate more than 10 thousand bells to the tree every year.
