Akachichi Shirochichi Shrine


Akachichi Shirochichi Shrine, like the adjacent Meoto Daikokusha is a sub-shrine of Kasuga Taisha (Kasuga Grand Shrine) in Nara.

Akachichi Shirochichi Shrine, Nara.

Located in a cedar wood to the south of the main Kasuga Taisha Shrine buildings, Akachichi Shirochichi Shrine is a Shinto shrine for prayers for curing women's diseases both above and below the waist.

The square-shaped ema (votive plaques) on display at the shrine show women's breasts and a red kimono.
