Detailed Travel Guide

Kamiiso Divine Shore and Torii
The Divine Shore is located east side of Isosaki Shrine. It is located far-east of Japan main island. So, the Sunrise starts from here in Japan. The Sun rising from this gate travels to Ise Grand Shrine
and sets at Izumo Grand Shrine. It is highly sacred place for all Japan. It has a beautiful Sunrise and shore that look like the stage and waves are dancing on there.

In Heian Period, Onamuchinomikoto and Sukunahikonanomikoto, who are enshrined in Oarai Isosaki
Shrine, descended to this Kamiiso Torii Gate.

Mitsukuni Tokugawa, the 2nd lord of Mito Domain, was impressed by this beautiful scene and composed a
poem about the beauty of the sea spray and the moonlight when he visited this shrine.
