Shiogama-jinja Shrine (志波彦神社 鹽竈神社)

Shrine

Shiogama-jinja Shrine is known for its shiogama cherry tree that has been designated as a Natural Monument of Japan. The main enshrined deities are Shiotsuchinooji, Takemikazuchi-no-kami and Futsunushi-no-kami, but the details before the Edo period are not very clear. Construction of the current shaden (main building) was completed in 1704, and 14 buildings including the honden (main shrine) and haiden (hall of worship) and the stone torii gate have been designated as National Important Cultural Properties. The deities are believed to answer a variety of prayers including those for safety at sea, success in catching fish, protection and easy delivery during childbirth, traffic safety, and for protection against misfortune. The deities are revered by the locals, and regardless of the type of prayer they will make their way to this shrine.

          Lying along the northeastern coast of Japan, Miyagi prefecture is home to lashings of natural parks, oysters, and hot springs. While the bustling city of Sendai offers some simple city entertainment, it's the Matsushima islands that deserve the most attention, having boosted the prefecture's reputation as one of Japan's most scenic views.
