Red Shrine and Rounded Small Hill Are Beautiful -Miyazubentengu Shrine in Okushiri Island-

October 5th, 2016

Miyazubentengu Shrine (宮津弁天宮) is located in the northern part of Okushiri Island. A shrine is built on a small hill with about 30 m in height, and that scenery was very nice, so it became a popular tourist place. The Miyazubentengu Shrine is next to Miyazu fishing port (宮津港), and visitors can visit the shrine to worship via stairway from the Miyazubenten parking lot park (宮津弁天駐車公園) and the Miyazu fishing port. Free admission. A parking lot is free of charge. There is a restroom at Miyazubenten parking lot park.

Miyazubentengu Shrine in Okushiri Island

Because a view was good, originally this place seemed to have a guard station. A Shinto shrine was founded during Bunseinekan (文政年間 * from 1818 to 1829) afterwards. Munakata-Sanjoshin was enshrined from Itsukushima-jinja Shrine (澳津島姫命), and Okitsushimahimehiko (宗像三女神) was moved to this place in 1841 and it became Okitsu jinja shrine (澳津神社) now. This shrine is called another name "Miyazubentensha Shrine (宮津弁天社)" and "Nakatsushima Jinja Shrine (中津島神社)".
