Takamiya Saijo


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.
