Takeshima | Near Nagoya



Do you know Takeshima?
It is about 680m in circumference and about 1.9ha in area.
It is very small island.
Takeshima is designated as a natural monument for the entire island.
The fact that it is about 400m away from the mainland but has a different plant system from that of the mainland is why it was designated as a natural monument.
This time, I will introduce Takeshima!

In Takeshima, there is the Yaotomi Shrine.
It is a very historic shrine built in 1181.

The shrine is located up the stairs.

This is “Yaotomi Shrine”.
Yaotomi Shrine, like other shrines, has amulet, omikuji, and “gosyuin”.
Yamomi Shrine’s Omikuji has Daidaikichi instead of being daikyo, so why not try your luck?
