Shrine dedicated to a sleeping god of easy deliveries

The main god of this shrine, Shiozuchi no ojinomikoto formed a connection between Yamasashihiko and Toyotamahime princess and blessed them with a baby born in an easy delivery. For this reason, it has come to be known by locals as a guardian shine for easy deliveries. The shrine is located in a cave naturally formed by sea wind, in a hole in rock called Koshi no Iwaya. There is a monument inscribed with a poem by Yamabe no Akahito next to it.
