Open Only Two Days A Year! Tsushima Shrine and Tsushimanomiya Station

 

05-83017

Tsushima Shrine, located in Mitoyo City, Kagawa, is a sacred place only accessible on August 4 and 5 during the Great Summer Festival. The beauty of this small island in the Seto Inland Sea paired with the shrine’s deities—protectors of marriage, easy child-birth, and children’s well-being—make it a popular spot for couples and families with children.

Tsushimanomiya Station is also popular with train enthusiasts as “The Station Where Trains Only Stop Two Days A Year.” In this article, we will provide a history of the shrine, access information, and our on-site festival report!
