Walk the approach for the first daughter-in law who married within a year. to a good match, with thanks, and lasting happiness, all in full dress.
The Hiyoshi shrine deity is revered as a god of marriage. From this choice, a happy “Daughter-in-Law Viewing Festival” will have been said to have begun. This festival started in the Showa period to celebrate new wives and woman who had gathered at the shrine, dressed up beautifully.
From the early 1960s the first daughter-in-law was married within a year wearing a bridal gown. In of order to pray for a good match, thanks, and lasting happiness, we attend the approach of the shrine. Recently we also invite unmarried women who also wish for a happy marriage.
