- quote
Uji Jinja is a guardian shrine for the residents in the local neighborhood of Uji and also famous as the guardian shrine of leg health.
The legend for strong leg health originated because many of the ancient pilgrims to Ise City prayed there for healthy and strong legs for their journeys back home.
The local folklore was further aided after Ise City’s own Mizuki Noguchi 野口みずき became the gold medal marathon winner in the 2004 Athens Olympics. The legend says that visitors can get stronger legs if they touch a special rock within the shrine.

Walking up the stone steps next to the shrine office there is this :


ashigamisan 足神さん Ashi no Kamisama
Deity for Strong Legs


The nadeishi, nade-ishi 撫石 is a stone to stroke with the wish for your own legs to become strong. Strike the stone first, then the part of your body that aches.

ウマシアシカビヒコヂ - 足神さん Ashigami San


Jinsei no ashidori ga yuku naru 人生の足取りが良くなる
May the strides of your life become easy.


- quote
Umashiashikabihikoji - Umashi ashikabi hikoji no kami
A kami that appeared in the process of formation of heaven and earth. Acording to Kojiki and an "alternate writing" quoted in the Nihongi, when the land was first formed, it was uncongealed like floating oil, and drifted about like a jellyfish. From within this substance an object appeared and sprouted like a reed, becoming the kami Umashiashikabihikoji.

Kojiki states that this kami was the fourth of the five separate heavenly kami (kotoamatsukami) that were produced alone (hitorigami) and then hid themselves away (i.e., died). The second and third "alternate writings" describing this episode in Nihongi, however, state that Umashiashikabihikoji was the first kami to come into being, while the sixth account describes it as the second kami produced.
This kami was not known as the ancestor of any clans.
