Umi Shrine


The cluster of giant camphor trees called “Kada’s Forest” (including the two old camphors that have been deemed Government-Designated Natural Treasures, “Yufuta’s Forest” and “Kinukake’s Forest”) at Umi Shrine are very well known. The shrine is venerated as the legendary place where Emperess Jingu safely gave birth to the future Emporer Ojin, and is still patroned by those praying for safe childbirth and smooth child rearing.
