Shirahama Shrine (白浜神社(伊古奈比び命神社))

This is Izu’s oldest shrine located in Shimoda City, Shizuoka Prefecture. As the temple grounds sit on a hillside on the Shirahama coast “Hidachiyama” (Mt. Hitachi), it is called Shirahama Shrine but its official issued name is Ikonahime no Mikoto Shrine. The god of matchmaking, Ikonahime no Mikoto is enshrined in the main shrine. The Chinese parasol tree forest is one of Japan’s Natural Treasure, while the 2000-year-old juniper tree forest has been designated by Shizuoka Prefecture as a Natural Treasure.

Coming south along the east coast of Izu toward Shimoda, one arrives at Shirahama shrine. It seems small from the road, but once you pass under the Torii Gate, the grounds are very nice. I noticed...

伊豆最古の神社とあって、いろいろな見どころがありますが、もっとも神々しく感じるのは、磯の鳥居。
しめ縄で結ばれた岩の上に紅の鳥居があります。
引き潮であれば、岩に登ることもできて、鳥居を潜ることもできますよ。

小ぢんまりとしていてわかりやすい作りの神社です。元日のお昼頃にはかなり列を作るので早めに行くと良いです。御朱印をお願いすると整理番号を渡されますが、出来上がっても番号を呼び出すシステムではないので、できているのかまだなのか何度も問い合わせることになりいい気分ではありません。

          With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan’s largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
