Shigari Wake Shrine

Nicknamed Akaishi-san since ancient times, he has been widely revered as the guardian deity of industrial prosperity, river and maritime safety, and traffic safety. A large red stone that is said to be the origin of the word Shiwa Town is enshrined in the temple grounds. The approach to the shrine is lined with large cherry trees, and among them is the 700-year-old matchmaking cherry tree, the Minami-no-zakura, which attracts a large number of visitors in the spring.
