A cool looking chozuya at a city shrine

Taga Shrine is located near Wakayama Castle. Although the shrine grounds are not large, it is nationally known as a shrine for naming babies, with Izanagi no Mikoto and Izanami no Mikoto as the main deities.

As the temperature rises in June, the chozuya (also called temizuya, place for ritual cleansing of hands and mouth with water) at Taga Shrine is decorated with a windmill and wind chimes to create a cool appearance.
