Sukunahikona Shrine is located in Doshomachi, known as a wholesale district for medicines, and is said to have been founded in 1780 when a spirit of Shohikono-no-mikoto, a branch of Shohikono-no-mikoto, was invoked from Gojo Tenjingu Shrine in Kyoto to obtain divine blessings for the safe conduct of pharmaceutical business.
The Kanno Festival held every year at the shrine in November is popularly called “Kanno-san” and is crowded with many people who wish for good health.
