In Ichinomiya City, which used to be famous for its prospering woolen fabric industry, coffee shops were often used for business negotiations. One day, a coffee shop owner served coffee, together with a charge-free light meal. The service was so popular that it was established as the unique culture of “Morning service,” which offers a light snack, such as bread or egg, together with a cup of tea or coffee, for the price of a drink. Today, most coffee shops in the city offer this Morning service.
Masumida Shrine has a long and distinguished history as “Ichinomiya,” or the principal shrine, of ancient Owari Province, from which the name of Ichinomiya City derived. This shows how this region was developed with Masumida Shrine as the core. The god of the shrine, who is believed to be a grandchild of a god enshrined in the Ise Shrine, has been widely worshipped for business success, social success, good luck and fertility and family prosperity. Hatori Shrine located within the same precincts has attracted many visitors as a god of marriage and safe childbirth.
