Futami Okitama-jinja Shrine (二見興玉神社)

A Shinto shrine famous for the Meoto Iwa (“Married Couple Rocks”) situated 700 meters off the coast. The shrine is dedicated to the god Sarutahiko Okami. The offshore Meoto Iwa are sacred rocks affiliated with Sarutahiko Okami. The rocks serve as a torii gate for those worshiping the sun. Because of their resemblance to a married couple cuddling close, the Meoto Iwa are said to be a symbol of matrimonial harmony and luck in love. Each year, on the summer solstice, you can come to worship the morning sun as it rises between the rocks. Numerous Futami frog statues, messengers of the gods donated by people whose prayers at the shrine were granted, can be found on the shrine grounds.

Several shrines along the walkway that clings to the cliff side. Dedicated to Mikestu the Shinto goddess of marriage harmony. Many statue frogs to pat for a wish. And the fascinating folklore story...
Reviewed:2019/10/11 Frogs and rocks
Kids liked the frogs and we liked the rocks. They are a beautiful back drop and I recommend visiting if you intend on visiting the area.

          Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
