Just north of the Hyogo Park Of The Oriental White Stork lies a shrine dedicated to Toyooka’s protected natural treasure.
Kukuhi Shrine hidden amongst the Toyooka countryside trees is known for receiving worshippers hoping for a child or who are already expecting.
Stork-themed Ema (wooden plaques with written prayers) placed by worshippers can be seen hanging as offerings to the gods and are available for purchase at Avian Tot, a vintage-style tearoom across the street from Kukuhi Shrine.
Those who are lucky might see a stork flying above Kukuhi Shrine during their visit.
Kukuhi Shrine gets its name from the older Japanese word for “stork,” which is “kukui.”
