Tsukiyomi Shrine

Tsukiyomi Shrine

This shrine is the biggest shrine in Sakurajima and a power spot that attracts people.
It is located right near Sakurajima Port and established around 708 ~ 715.
Some say the name of Sakurajima is from a one of the goddesses of Japanese myth “Konohana-sakuya-hime”, and this goddess is also worshiped at this shrine.
This shrine was buried during the Taisho eruption, and it was moved to its former place in 1930.
The view from the viewing platform is great.
