What kind of shrine is Mikami jinja?
※Masayuki Unemenosuke Fujiwara statue.
Masayuki Unemenosuke Fujiwara is said to be the forefather of the beauty industry in Japan. He and his technique were highly appreciated by the shogunate government. In other words, he could be regarded as the god of all hair and beauty salons in Japan. So, he is not the god specialized in growing new hair per se, but many people who have a problem with their hair visit this “one and only shrine for head and hair in Japan” every day to worship him. On ema (votive horse tablet) you can see their desperate prayers.
･May my dad’s hairline not recede any more
･God! Please protect my hair
･STOP hair loss! GET UP hair roots!
･I want more hair!! Et cetra, the cry from the soul of those who wish to gain hair. :-p
It seems that Japanese celebrities who worry about thinning hair visited Mikami jinja and worshipped deities to make their wish come true. ※a votive picture tablet
