Ashikaga has the history of weaving for 1300 years. In 1704, when Toda Tadatoshi became a domain lord of Ashikaga, he found out that there was no shrine enshrined weaving, and asked Ise Jingu Shrine to establish the Orihime, the princess of weaving who weaved the cloth for Amaterasu Omikami, at Ashikaga.
In 1880, the previous shrine was burnt down, and in 1937 reconstructed at Orihime Mountain.
Orihime Shrine is famous for all kinds of match makings.
Red: match making for person.
Yellow: match making for health.
Green: match making for the intelligence.
Blue: match making for a great life.
Deep Red: match making for a job.
Purple: match making for a business.
