Charms of Minamiboso (36) Sunosaki Shrine

(36) 洲崎神社

Sunosaki Shrine stands on the tip of Sunosaki Cape, the western most part of Tateyama City. Climbing up steep steps, the 300-year-old shrine building welcomes you against the beautiful green of natural forest. If you turn around and see where you came from, you will be dazzled by the view of the ocean spreading from down below to the horizon. At the festival in August, the portable shrine is carried down the 147 steps, while the carriers roll the shrine wildly.
