✿ Willow of Matchmaking of the Rokkakudo Temple ✿

 

The willow tree called “Rokkaku Yanagi” at the Rokkakudo temple is known as “the willow for matchmaking.” Legend has it that at the beginning of Heian Period (beginning of the 9th century) the Emperor Saga was looking for a woman to be his wife, and that one night he was told in a dream to go to the willow tree at the Rokkakudo Temple. There he found a beautiful woman, who later became his wife. Word spread among people that “by making a wish at the willow of the Rokkakudo temple, one may find a good match,” and the willow began to be called “willow of matchmaking.” It is now believed that tying a paper with one’s fortune written on it to two branches of willow can bring a good match.

✿ 六角堂的結緣柳 ✿

 

六角堂境內的「六角柳」也被稱為「結緣柳」。相傳在平安時代,嵯峨天皇在尋找皇后人選之際,一日夜晚夢見了「到六角堂柳樹下尋找吧」的預言,實際到了六角堂後,天皇果真在柳樹下遇見了一位絶世佳人,並迎其為后。因此逸話,「向六角堂柳樹祈願即可覓得良緣」的傳言廣佈,不知何時起,六角堂的柳樹便被人們稱為「結緣柳」了。現在,據說拾起兩條柳枝一起繫上籤詩,許願後便可獲得佳緣。
