There are many small Shinto shrines in the precinct. And every shrines enshrine each deity.

When I came to one of them, I found many previous visitors. Most of them were young women. Although I don't know the reason, the deities enshrined are thought as the deities of marriage. So many young women come to offer prayers. During watching the worshipers from their behind, they started to pray altogether.
