ITSUKUSHIMA SHINTO SHRINE

Itsukushima Shinto Shrine is the spirit that protects Kushiro.
The ocean spreads vastly outward and in the distance are Mt. Akan, together carving the history of Kushiro.

The History of Itsukushima Shinto Shrine

About 1805, for the sake of fishery safety and fishing success, we invited Princess Mikoto from the Itsukushima Shinto Shrine in Hiroshima through the dividing of spirits. Since that time, fishing success continued, as an effect villages were built around the shrine and Kushiro developed as a city of fishery.
