Oki Shrine



Built in 1939 to commemorate the 700th anniversary of the death of  Emperor Go-Toba who was exiled to the Oki Islands in 1221. The shrine is built in an architectural style unique to the Oki Islands. The shrine is popular with visitors for the rows of cherry blossoms that bloom on the shrine grounds are praised as some of the best on the Oki Islands. Festivals are held on 4/14 and 10/14 every year dedicated to the Japanese poems (Waka) written by the late Emperor Go-Toba that include a special song and dance called “Jyoukyuugaku” which is exclusive to Oki Shrine.

Near the shrine is the Emperor Go-Toba Museum that displays the treasures of Oki Shrine, centering around the items related to the late emperor. 


*The shrine also offers night tours, by reservation only, that gives you a different experience then from the day
