|Shiroyama Hachimangū (城山八幡宮)|
|Location||Nagoya, central Japan|
|Glossary of Shinto|
The shrine is located on the premises of the ruined Suemori Castle. The castle itself dates back to the 16th century. The shrine hosts night-time festivals (matsuri) in both July and October, featuring traditional Japanese music and dance performances.
An unusual feature is a sacred Marital Tree, whose trunk split into two parts and grew back together at a later time. This tree is worshipped as a symbol of happy marriage and restoration of relationships.
