  2. Spot: Shirahige-jinja Shrine

Shirahige-jinja Shrine

Shirahige-jinja Shrine was founded 1900 years ago, boasting the longest history for a shrine Omi. This is also one of the constituent elements of the Japan Heritage story. Against the backdrop of the lake island of Okishima, the sight of fishing boats going about their business between the torii gates in the offing is particularly stunning. Furthermore, the gates are illuminated at night. (Illumination times: Saturday and Sunday - around 2 hours after sunset, September 5 - from sunset until around 10pm, New Year's Eve - until dawn, January 1 to January 5 - from sunset until around 9pm)
Early morning is a particularly recommended time to visit, with the morning sun rising inside the Torii gate, and this has recently also become is a popular time to take photos.
