●Willow of Matchmaking of the Rokkakudo Temple
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 one’s fortune slip to two branches of willow can bring a good match.
