Here is a good sign, a phoenix in the sky, so we would like to share it with you.

On the Internet, we found this photo. Izumo Taisha under a cloud looking like a imaginary lucky bird spreading her wings over it.

People were talking about the cloud looks like the “Hoooo (鳳凰 or ほうおう)”, a Chinese (and very well-knowin in Japan, too) legendary bird which brings you good luck.

And the shrine enshrines Ookuninushi, the powerful god who is believed to connects people with good relationships including marriage.
