Owase-jinja Shrine尾鷲神社


Owase-jinja Shrine is located five minutes by car from the Owase-Kita Interchange on the Kisei Highway. Susa-no-o-no-Mikoto is its enshrined deity, and it is the only shrine in Owase that has such a long history. According to tradition, it was founded in the Taiho period (701-703), and it is said that many warriors came to pray for victory during the Warring States period. Every year, a festival called Yaya Matsuri, a festival principally for young men, is held on Old New Year, February 1 to 5, and it is considered one of Japan's many strange festivals. Two large camphor trees that stand within the precincts are considered husband and wife trees, and are said to be more than a thousand years old. They have been designated prefectural natural monuments.

Mie Main Areas


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.
