Things to know

Halfway up Mt. Takuhiyama, Takuhi Jinja Shrine has been worshipped since long ago as a deity that protects the safety of voyages. After climbing the steep, two-kilometer-long mountain road from the parking lot, visitors will arrive at a building called Unpyokaku. This is the chief priest's principal residence, and during certain times worshippers can also stay overnight to pray. In addition, walking a short way through the shrine grounds surrounded by old cedar trees will reveal the beautiful main shrine building inside the carved-out hollow of a rock wall. The unique and fascinating scenery that can been viewed from the trees is certainly not something to miss. In order to reach Takuhi Jinja Shrine, visitors will need to take a ferry. It is customary for boats departing from Nishinoshima to sound a foghorn, which is said to be a prayer to protect the voyages to the shrine.
