One of the 5 main shrines in Tajima, Yabu-jinja Shrine was established in 737. The shrine represents the God of Agriculture and has been appreciated by locals for a long time. It is called Yabu no Myojin San or the Myojin (a title for Shinto gods) of Yabu by many locals and is known for being the god of cows.
During Hatsumode (First Shinto shrine visit at the beginning of the new year) locals gather by the temple. It is also known as one of the most popular destinations to see the autumn foliage in Hyogo Prefecture. Many tourists and photographers visit the area during this time.
