Shinto shrine

Found throughout Japan, Shinto shrines bearing the name "Suitengu" are headquartered at Kurume Suitengu in Fukuoka Prefecture.
The Suitengu shrine located in Tokyo's Chuo Ward is known as a place to receive the blessings of conception and safe childbirth.
Since dogs give birth to many puppies easily, there is a statue of a mother dog and her pup. Representing the safe childbirth that worshippers wish for, it is surrounded by the 12 symbols of the Chinese zodiac. It is said that rubbing the zodiac sign that you were born under will bring you the blessings of conception and safe childbirth.
Also, as part of the Nihombashi Seven Lucky Gods Walk, Benzaiten, the goddess of the treasures of life, is known as a power spot for good luck in the arts and money. On the 5th day of the month, as well as on "Mi no Hi", a ceremony held on the day of the Snake in the 3rd lunar month of the Chinese Zodiac, the doors open and her statue may be seen.
