Three rocks (Iwa) are objects of worship; Ichi no Iwa, Namida Iwa and Enmusubi no Iwa. The shrine is with the Enmusubi no Iwa as if the rock is wrapping the shrine. “Enmusubi” refers to matchmaking. There are small through-holes on the rock. It is believed that a good match can be made when you suspend a coin of five yen (Go yen) from the rock using a thread.
