Old shrine with mystic power to protect people

This extremely old Shinto shrine is said to have been founded in 711.  The shrine belonged to the famous yin-yang master’s family in Kyoto who was responsible for conducting important rituals for the imperial family.  The two deities are believed to give blessings for bringing good luck, particularly in games and competitions.  What makes this shrine popular among people is their amulet called Samuhara, said to ward off misfortunes and bad luck.  In the same precinct, there is the smaller Shiragiku Inari Okami Shrine and a grave of a famous Buddhist monk who greatly contributed to society during the Heian period (794-1185) using his holy power.
