The sand path to the Shrine appears when the tide ebbs, and it is the Shrine that was deified at the mysterious location.
Unbelievably it is said that only the wooden divine object remained keeping its original form in the ash, even though the main building was burned down by fire.
From ancient times, the Shrine was revered throughout neighboring people, and still many people visit here to pray for success for entrance exams.
Please visit at nightfall to enjoy seeing the beautiful sunset.
