Landmark
Soak up the reverential atmosphere and pleasant scenery at Aoshima Shrine, a Shinto shrine occupying an attractive spot in the jungle of the island's interior. Thought to have been enshrined in 820 CE, the shrine has become known for providing good fortune in marriage, with young couples arriving here to ask for luck in the years ahead. The shrine's buildings have been rebuilt numerous times over the years, though its bright and bold coloration today works particularly well with the surrounding jungle plant life.

  • I could not fully enjoy the charm so unfortunately we interviewed on rainy days, but proceeded to sea and the unusual location. Into the side of the shrines, tropical forest where there are very positive.

  • Aoshima has beautiful scenery which is called the island in a small shrine. The place is a magnet for tourists although very NIE. The scenery around the shrine, but was mingling with the beautiful. The red door above the entrance to the shrine is impressive. One of the places not to miss in Miyazaki myeom.

  • Bridge and go walking down the street in the demon's washboard, the vermilion Torii and even had a shrine ahead. Throughout the island in aoshima Shinto shrine was only Shinto and Island Magistrate on the island allowed was is. "Tianjin Hidaka Gen fire fire out found life" with God and dedicated to Princess God "govermment life" and "salt barrel Okami", both named after the popular sea seafood culture, matchmaking, have an easy delivery, is bringing the faith as the God of the sea safety. It was a beautiful shrine so went early in the morning in a quiet, dignified atmosphere. From annual shrine I'm in Giants camp, was decorated with lot of EMA.

  • “Peaceful place” It's a nice stroll to this shrine, first you walk across a stone bridge, then see Onino Senkatuita and then Aoshima Island, I never got the pleasure to walk around the island after visiting the shrine as it was raining quite heavy but the shrine is really worth the trip. The care and attention that goes into maintaining the shrine is done with lots of pride and it shows as the shrine is so beautiful and colourful, I'm glad that this was another fascinating shrine for me to visit and enjoy.
  • This shrine is really peaceful, located in the middle of the island, it releases calm and peace, with the sound of the sea is the best to rest and relax for a while.
  • Beautiful shrine. Good place for a trip with scenic view of the Pacific, good beach, can do surfing as well..
  • Good for pokemon, really interesting rock formations
  • Quite unusual setting for a shrine, surrounded by palm trees in the middle of a sandy island. Great place for a date or family trip.
