Pray for a baby at the adorable rabbit [Higashitenno Okazaki Shrine]

This shrine was built to the east of the capital to protect Heian-kyo. The shrine is also famous as a "Rabbit Shrine" because of the habitat of wild rabbits that have inhabited the area for a long time. Since rabbits are fertile, the shrine is widely worshipped by those who wish to have a child or have a safe delivery.
