Travel Guide - Shiogama-jinja Shrine


Shiogama Shrine stands on a wooded hill in the city center of Shiogama. The shrine, said to have been established before the Heian period (794 - 1185), has long been revered by the authority of Tohoku region, especially the Date clan. The current Shaden Hall was built by Date Yoshimura in 1704. The main approach through the stone Torii gate is up a set of steep stone stairs and under two more gates to the Main Hall. It is a good place to get a fine view of Shiogama Bay. In the vicinity are a 600-year-old holly tree, a stone sundial presented in 1792 by Shihei Hayashi, a then-noted scholar, and a huge ancient copper lantern. The museum attached to the shrine displays swords, armor and old documents. Also on display are materials connected with salt manufacturing and fishing from the Stone Age to the present day.
