A shrine dedicated to Orihime, and the birthplace of Enshu weaving
Ubuginu Jinja is a shrine with a long history, known for weaving ceremonial garments (clothing worn by gods) that were kept at the Grand Shrine at Ise between 1154 and 1885. Though the succession was temporarily broken, it was revived in 1968, and every year in May, ceremonial garments woven at Ubuginu Jinja are offered at the Grand Shrine at Ise. The looms used to weave the ceremonial garments are periodically rebuilt, but in order to provide the gods with the same garments each time, the size and pattern has remained precisely the same for more than 800 years.
