Tarobo-gu Shrine is said to bring success and good fortune to those who pray there. The huge Meoto-iwa, or married couple rocks, in the shrine grounds measure around 20 meters in size, with a small 80-centimeter gap in the middle. People of good will who walk through the gap are said to have their wishes come true, while the rocks are said to close in on people with bad intentions.
