Torigoe Shrine is famous for Tondoyaki and other traditional Japanese festivals. Tondoyaki is a traditional Japanese event to send the God of the New Year (Toshigami).
When Minamoto no Yoshiie went to Oshu, he couldn’t advance his army because of the inlet. The Name “ToriKoe” was given because a bird past overhead and showed him the ford.
The shrine is most often called Torikoe Shrine, while the area is known as Torikoe.
In Japanese “Tori” means bird, and Koe means “voice”.
