Ono Shrine

Ono Shrine is located in the silence of a thick forest.
The deity enshrined at the shrine is Taganetsuki Oomi no Mikoto, ancestor to the fifth emperor of Japan, Emperor Kosho, and the 6th-7th century diplomat Ono no Imoko. Taganetsuki Oomi no Mikoto is said to have been the first in Japan to pound rice into mochi, and is widely worshipped as a deity of confectionary work.
Additionally, the soapnut trees growing along the path leading to Ono Shrine measure 4.19 meters around the trunk, and are the largest in the prefecture.
