Travel Guide - Futami Okitama-jinja Shrine / Meoto-iwa (Wedded-Rocks)

InformationInformation

The pair of rocks fastened together by ropes works as Torii gate to adore Futami Okitama-jinja Shrine's "Okitama-Shinseki" god stone sunk in the sea 700 meters off the coast. Since these rocks look like a couple standing together, it is called Meoto-iwa (Wedded-Rocks) and regarded as a symbol of good marriage.
The scene of the sun rising between the rocks, which can only be seen from May to July, is spectacular and should not be missed. Instead of the sun, the full moon can also be seen at night from November to January.
