Fodor's Review

The original shrine was established in the 6th century, but the present structure was built under the patronage of the Shimazu clan in 1715. It is wonderfully appointed with views as far away as Sakura-jima. The shrine is dedicated to Ninigi-no-mikoto, the legendary god who landed on the peak of Takachiho-no-mine nearby. This imposing beautiful shrine inscribed in an incredible setting is well worth a visit.
