Kuwanokawa Toriisugi桑の川の鳥居杉

Other Sightseeing Spot

The Kuwanokawa Toriisugi is two cedar trees standing either side of the approach leading to the Kuwanokawa Jishu Shrine. The branches of the trees extend out horizontally about five meters above the ground making it look like a shrine gate hence its name, Toriisugi, which literally means “cedar shrine gate”. It has been designated as a Natural Monument of the Prefecture, and it is said to bring good luck with regards to marriage.

          Kochi Main Areas


          The largest of Shikoku's prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island's most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you're a pilgrim or not, Kochi's 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
