About this sight

With over 1,000 years of history, this shrine hosts the Chakkirako festival, a designated UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage, every year on January 15. The Misaki festival is a traditional dance performed by young girls aged 5 to 12 holding bamboo sticks or chakkirako, and fans. The shrine also has many hanging ropes at the altar. Visitors will also find an 800-year-old gingko tree on the grounds.
