Things to know

Motosumi Jinja Shrine was nominated as one of the “31 Most Beautiful Places in Japan” by American television company affiliated CNN Travel. Built over a period of 10 years starting in 1987, the 123 torii gates that line up for over 100m making a tunnel of gates up from the coastline of the Sea of Japan is an extraordinary sight indeed. If you make your way through the closely line up red torii gates you’ll find yourself at the “Ryugu no Shiofuki”, a beautiful spot where you can see the big waves thrown up into the air as they clash against the cliffside. The vivid blue sky and sea make for quite the eye opening and beautiful contrast to the red torii gates. A truly beautiful sight you surely will never forget! Inside of the shrine grounds you can find a giant 6m tall torii gate, the tallest at the shrine, which has an offertory box neatly positioned at the top in the middle. It is said that if you can successfully toss a coin into the box your wish will come true! 
 
※The shrine can become busy with visitors so make sure you have plenty of time to look around!
