Option 02: Oarai Isosaki Shrine

Oarai Isosaki Shrine is a shrine that is famous around local as a “power spot”, or place of spiritual energy along the rugged Oarai coastline. Interestingly, this shrine has a total of three torii gates situated in different locations, but the most famous one by far is called Kamiiso-no-Torii, meaning Gate of the Seashore God. This spectacular structure faces the Pacific Ocean on a single rock as strong waves repeatedly splash against the stone from dawn to dusk. As if looking through a window, the breathtaking view visible from the gate’s opening is enough to feel the presence of something divine – or at least the makings of a swoon-worthy picture.
