Japan’s most oldest Ancient style Shrine
The steps lead to Takamiya Saijo (Ceremonial Site), where ancient rituals were performed.
Takamiya Saijo is very important since the rituals currently observed at Hetsu-gu originated there.
To the northwest of the ceremonial site, visitors can view the marine route linking Hetsu-gu with
Okinoshima via the Tsurikawa River, Oshima, and finally across the Genkai Sea.
