Religious Site
A large thatched wooden shrine dominating a fishing village against spectacular mountainous landscape, Miho Shrine boasts the oldest music box in Japan, as well as two ritual dugout-canoes designated as national cultural property. Set in a harbor and linked to the legend of Hagoromo, a robe of feathers, this is the most important of 3,000 Ebisu shrines, which protect fishermen and commerce. Browse through a collection of 846 musical instruments dedicated to Ebisu, and watch monks wind-dry a fresh catch of squid.

  • It is a quiet shrine. Located across the road in front of the shrine is near the sea, like fishing. We recommend that you go by car as well ordinary shrine parking area is located near. By the way cominunitibas is running.
