See the impressive setting and learn about the rich history of Naminoue-gu Shrine, a place of worship set high on a bluff overlooking the ocean and a beach. Legend has it a fisherman founded the shrine here to mark the spot where he caught a glowing stone that improved his hauls. Given its dramatic coastal position, the Shinto shrine's dedication to the sea and nirai kanai, the source of life, makes sense, as does its historical connection with fishermen and sailors, with maritime workers coming here to ask for protection and safe passage. Dating back to at least the 14th century, the shrine was destroyed during the battle of Okinawa in 1945, and has been rebuilt and added to during the post-war era.

  • 波上宮威風凜凜佇立於海邊斷崖的沖繩第一神社,與波上宮鄰接的波之上海灘是那霸市唯一的海灘,是個迷你的神社,可是卻有濃濃的日本味,來日本了怎麼能錯過神社呢!而且離市區又近,旁邊還有個玩水的沙灘,是個值得造訪的神社呢!

  • A small shrine that is placed on a klif. It does not take too much time to visit. It offers some shadow, space to sit and meditate. As usual there is a talisman shop.
