Sakatsura Isosaki Shrine

Central Ibaraki


Sakatsura Isosaki Shrine, established in 856, is known for bringing fortune in recovery from illness, health, and longevity. Also, many lottery winners have visited the shrine, making it equally famous in recent years for increasing wealth. Oarai Isosaki Shrine, located in the neighboring town of Oarai and famous for its torii gate on the coastal rocks, is its sister shrine. Oarai Isosaki Shrine is dedicated to Okuninushi, the deity who created the nation of Japan. On the other hand, Sakatsura Isosaki Shrine is dedicated to a deity named Sukunabikona, who is said to have collaborated with Okuninushi.

The shrine's charms lie in its beautiful, dense thicket of Japanese bay trees that are over 300 years old and camellias growing on both sides of the shrine road. This tree tunnel, a designated natural monument of Ibaraki Prefecture, ia a phoogeic spot, feeling like a space luring you into a magic world. There is a torii gate beside the shrine road where you can view the sea. Here in June you can also enjoy the hydrangeas.
