Ubusuna no Kami
Text The tutelary deity of one's birthplace. A newly born child is taken for a first visit to the shrine of this deity, who is believed to protect the person throughout life. People who move to other areas later still return to their native homes to participate in festivals for their ubusuna no kami and consider themselves an ubuko or parishioner of that deity.
