Located next door to the grand Yakuoin Onsenji Temple, this Shrine is dedicated to the god of Weaving.

Derived from hataori (to weave), the name is clear, but it is believed that its current popularity comes from a more contemporary interpretation. Used to refer to social weaving, or networking, many visit the shrine in the hope of forming better connections, be it in a personal or professional sense. You’ll find the Shrine beyond the large stone tori gate, at the foot of which the annual Yamashiro Daidengaku festival performances are held.
