This shrine has been enshrined as a god of safety journey in Kanmon straits. Its Torii gate faces to the ocean. Traditional religious music were played around the shrine. I prayed a safe travel in Kyushu.

Nice little shrine purported to be the oldest in northetn Kyushu, worth a visit if you are in Mojiko and have taken the trail along the sea front to Norfolk Paza and beyond. Right opposite is the foot tunnel under the Kanmon Straights to Shimonoski - but thats another story.
