Mishima-taisha Shrine (三嶋大社)

Temple

A Shinto shrine located in the Omiya Town, Mishima City, Shizuoka Prefecture famous as the place where the great shogun Minamoto no Yoritomo prayed for victory before raising his army. Dedicated to good fortune and happiness, the shrine is seen as being of particular benefit to persons involved in commerce, industry, and fishing, and the shrine grounds bustle constantly with worshipers praying for prosperity in business or an abundant harvest. The shrine’s grounds contain numerous points of note, including the “Koshikake-ishi,” a pair of chair-like stones connected to the history of Minamoto no Yoritomo and his wife Hojo Masako, a stone monument engraved with a haiku by master poet Matsuo Basho, and a 1,200 year old fragrant olive tree which is a nationally designated Natural Monument. Historical artifacts are displayed in the shrine’s treasure hall, such as a gold and silver lacquered box, a designated National Treasure, presented to the shrine by Hojo Masako. In addition to being a famous cherry blossom viewing spot, the shrine also welcomes great throngs of sightseers during the Mishima Summer Festival held from August 15 to 17.

          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.
