Awa Shrine

This is a shrine in Tateyama with a history of about 2,700 years. A large pure-white torii-gate stands on the approach leading to the shrine, which stands as if embraced by a deep forest, creating a solemn atmosphere. It is said that the "Itsukushima-sha" shrine, which is made by hollowing out a huge rock, enshrines "Ichikishimahime-no-Mikoto", the god of maritime safety. There is also a Japanese-style cafe called "Awa-Adzuchi Teahouse" in the shrine, where you can enjoy matcha green tea, Japanese sweets, and handmade rice balls. In spring, on both sides of the approach-way to the shrine, cherry blossoms are in full bloom. Be sure to visit when it is in full bloom.
