Pay Your Respects to Breasts at the Karube Shrine

The Karube Shrine can be found in Soja City, Japan. Unlike other shrines you may be accustomed to viewing, the Karube Shrine is a place to pay homage to women's breasts.

The Karube Shrine is dedicated to the Goddess of Breasts, Chichigamisama. Prayers to Chichigamisama consist of wishes of a safe child birth, producing breast milk or curing breast cancer.

The mounted boob planks that dot the walls of the Karube Shrine are called Ema, which is where worshippers can scribble in their requests and wishes. These Emas can be purchased online for anyone who’s interested in praying to Chichigamisama.
