Fukui-Ken Gokoku Shrine

Out of the many people enshrined at the Fukui-Ken Gokoku Shrine, is one Sanai Hashimoto, a brilliant doctor who lived during the closing years of the Edo Period.
His quotes are written on paper and put inside a “daijyobu” charm that people can carry to protect themselves from illness. The “I’m okay” charm is only available at this temple and is popular with people who say that they desire an unshakeable faith.
On the shrine grounds there is a sturdy pillar called the “Kyuryu Chutei Pillar,” which symbolizes this unshakable faith. And nearby is another, called the “Senobi Stone,” which allows you to compare your height with that of Dr. Hashimoto.
Many people come to pray for success or victory, especially students, who come in large numbers to pray during examination season, between November and March.
