Tamatsushima-jinja Shrine

Torii gate to shrine

This shrine has drawn the faith from the imperial court and poets since
long time ago as the deity of waka poetry. The three main deities enshrined
here are Wakahirume-no-mikoto, Empress Jingu, and Sato-orihime. Also one of the three Waka Poetry gods, Tamatsushima-myojin is worshiped here. You can command a beautiful view of Wakanoura from Tengu-yama and Kagami-yama both accessible from Tamatsushima-jinja’s grounds.
