Kaniou Mountain and Chifukuji Temple
There was the servant’s daughter who took good care of the Crab in the pod. The crab helped the daughter when she was attached by the snake. Since then, people started to hold a memorial service and prayers can be heard (the story is from Natori ‘s old tale). Since crabs collect stones, it is said that wishes for prosperous business and money can be heard especially. Currently, the temples and Shrines which hold a memorial service for crabs are only Chifukuji Temple and Kanimanji Temple in Japan.
