Shioya-oji Shrine
One of the ninety-nine satellite shrines of the Kumano Kodo, Shioya-oji Shrine, is also known as the "beauty oji".
The reason for this is because it is said if you pray at this shrine you will give birth to a beautiful girl. Shops near the shrine sell votive pictures.
Those hoping for a daughter should visit the shrine once.
