Kanahebisui Shrine is enshrined in the gateway to a deep valley called Kanahebizawa. It is a scared place for the faith in the water god. The object of worship here is the serpent. The shrine has now become a popular location thought to be flowing with mystical energy for answering prayers for thriving business, luck with money, protection against misfortune, recovery from illness, maritime safety and large catches of fish.
The grounds of the shrine are home to a wisteria trellis said to be 300 years old and a tree peony garden boasting a leading area of Tohoku at approximately 3,305 square meters. These delight the eyes of visitors in each season.
The Flower Festival and Spring Festival are held here in May. Wisteria, azaleas and tree peonies bloom in full glory beautifully. The Benzaiten Festival (Tanabata Hydrangea Festival) is held here on the first Sunday of every July. A statue of Benzaiten is unveiled at this time. The Fall Festival is held to give thanks for the harvest on the second Sunday of every October.
