Tamawakasu-mikoto Shrine [Okinoshimacho]
Oki Soja and the giant tree that has seen the history of Oki
Worshipped as the Soja (shrine dedicated to many gods) of Oki, the main shrine is built in the unique architectural style known as Oki-zukuri, and along with the old worship hall and Zuishin Gate, has become a nationally designated important cultural asset. The "Mitami-Kai Furyuu", held every year on June 5th, is one of the three major festivals on Dogo, has a must-see Shinto ritual in which eight mythical horses suddenly gallop forth. Also, on the shrine grounds, a giant cedar tree called "Yaosugi" which is said to be over 2,000 years old, shows us its majestic shape.
