Taga-jinja & Sex Museum

Top choice shinto shrine in Uwajima

Once upon a time, many Shintō shrines had a connection to fertility rites. Of those that remain, Taga-jinja is one of the best known. The grounds of the shrine have a few tree-trunk phalluses and numerous statues and stone carvings, but it's the notorious three-storey Sex Museum, packed with anthropological erotica from all corners of the procreating world, that brings 'em in.
