In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
North of Miyakejima Airport, you can find Shiitori Shrine. Visit this humble shrine, believed to be the origins of events in the local mythology, and pay respects to the eighth Shiritaki of Sakitama-hime who is enshrined here. While mudslides destroyed the original shrine, you can visit its reconstruction.
