Kyoto by the Sea

Amanohashidate Shrine

This shrine stands in the center of Amanohashidate, a naturally occurring land bridge that cuts across two salt water bays. It is a popular spot for couples and families out walking the Amanohashidate land bridge or going to the white sand beaches in the summer.
Amanohashidate is known for its multiple dragon legends, and at this shrine eight great dragon kings are enshrined. Right next to the shrine is a purifying spring, which is actually one of Japan's 100 famous water sources.
