Kamiiso Torii (Oarai Iso-Mae Shrine)

Oarai Iso-Mae Shrine, located in Oarai Town, Higashiibaraki District, Ibaraki Prefecture, is a Shinto shrine dedicated to Omoikane-no-Mikoto and Sukunahikona-no-Mikoto as its enshrined deities.

 (577)

The main hall, where the presiding deity, the guardian of household safety and maritime traffic, is enshrined, showcases architectural styles from the early Edo period and is designated as a cultural asset of the prefecture. The impressive feature of the shrine is the "Kamiiso Torii," a grand torii gate known in the Kanto region, which was praised by Tokugawa Mitsukuni. This torii gate stands on a rock in the sea, offering a view of the sunrise and moonrise. Due to its connection with the sea, the Oarai Maritime Museum is also located nearby.

From the seaside precincts, visitors can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean.
