石切神社 Ishikiri-jinjya Ishikiri Shrine

Jp En

Ishikiri Shrine is located in Higashi-Ishikiri town, Higashi-Osaka district, Osaka. Officially, it is called Ishikiri Tsurugiya Jinja, of which Ishikiri jinja is an abbreviation.

The shrine is well known to Osaka citizens as Ishikiri-san or 'denbo no kamisan (god of curing lumps)'. The belief that the shrine could 'cure lumps' spread in the Showa period.

The name Ishikiri derives from the sword and arrow that is honored in the shrine. It is believed that the sword and arrow could cut and penetrate anything – even robust rocks. This probably explains why the shrine gained the reputation that its sharp weapons could cut and cure bumps and lumps, too.

According to the temple biography, Ishikiri Shrine was established by Miyayama-no-Kaminosha in 658. It is also known as the place for 'oyakudo-mairi' (visiting the shrine 100 times brings luck) and people continuously visit the temple.
