To get out to Aoshima ["blue island"] Shrine, you walk through this area of quaint, yet kitschy shops, that sell amongst other things and much to Sandy's delight, mango ice cream.
That's it, walk the path, grasshopper.
"Aoshima Shinto Shrine is dedicated to Hikohohodemi no Mikoto (or * Yamasachi Hiko), to Toyotamahime no Mikoto, and to Shiotsutsu no Ookami. * (Yamasachi means mountain products" Hiko means "man") The origin of Aoshima Shrine is unknown but there is a record that peple revered the shrine as early as the Heian Era in the ninth-century A.D.
Aoshima shrine is supposed to give a divine blessing,especially to those who want to be married."
Alternatively called the devil's, demon's or giant's washboard, this odd configuration of rock is pretty cool. Despite having read [the translation] of how they came about, I still don't quite get how they formed. Rock, erosions, sunspots, something... It's all ball bearings.
NOT A NINJA.
DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME.
