Forest of Seven Lucky Gods
Simple statues dedicated to the Seven Lucky Gods can be seen within rows of rice storehouses built long ago in the Edo period. Known as "the water of luck and prosperity," spring water originating from the inner sanctum of the Shinsengu Shrine in the 7,000 square meter forest is offered to each of the Lucky Gods. Shinsen means "God's spring" and it is said that the spring water first came out on the 1,700th day after the Gods' revelations.
