With a history of approximately 1,200 years since it was built and believed to enshrine the guardian deity of agricultural and fishing industries, Iwakiyama-jinja Shrine is also called by its other names of “O-Iwaki-sama” and “O-yama.” The long path leading from the torii gate to the honden (main shrine) is flanked on either side by sugi (Japanese cryptomeria trees). The premises feature a honden, haiden (hall of worship), okumon (inner gate), and romon (two-storied gate) all arranged in a line, and these beautiful structures have been designated as Important Cultural Properties.

Aomori Main Areas


Centuries-old stories of samurai at Kakunodate and the remains of millennia-old archaeological sites including the likes of Isedotai invite history buffs to delve into Aomori's fascinating history. As the most northern prefecture on the Japanese mainland, Aomori enjoys a cooler climate, which makes it a welcome escape from the southern cities for combining castles, art galleries, and summer festivals with the great outdoors.
