Munakata Shrine Okitsu-gu Yohaisho

 

Munakata Shrine Okitsu-gu Yohaisho, World Heritage

 

Because Okinoshima has long been an object of worship, public access to the island is strictly limited.
The Okinoshima landscape has been preserved intact until now because local people have strictly

observed various taboos.  For example, even if one is allowed to land on the island, one is forbidden

to speak a word about what one has seen or heard there; and one must never take anything from the

island, not even a twig, blade of grass, or pebble.
