The Keyakurotatsu Shrine was built to house the guardian deity of the Kuzuyu River and act as protector of the peace and harmony of the nation and its people. The shrine is home to one of the four great “myojin” gods in Japan, and was a place for the Echizen Matsudaira family to pray.
After Fukui had survived the bombings of World War II and then the terrible earthquake of 1948, the people are said to have appealed for the protection of the gods in the shrine, the only shrine to have survived these disasters, for the power and wisdom to ward off evil and restore their lives and hearts to peace and health.
