Shrine of Unedori-sama
Unedori-sama is a small shrine located 1.7 km west-southwest of Toono station.
(It is also called "Unetori-sama".)
There is only an unmanned shrine.
And a lot of red cloths are tied on a few ropes around the shrine.
The wish of each worshipper is written on the cloth.
It is said that you will get together with your lover if you can tie a red cloth with ONLY YOUR LEFT HAND.
The red cloth for you is sold at the shrine.
You offer 100 yen to the shrine, worship the shrine, pick up a red cloth, write your wish on the cloth, then tie it on the rope.
(You shouldn't use the red cloth without your offer. Heaven will punish you for it!)
