Sacred shrine standing in a cave on the side of a cliff.

Udo shrine is a sacred place where the goddess Toyotamahime gave birth. The red-painted main shrine is in the cave of Udozaki, and when you turn around, you can view the ocean through the approach to the shrine. The natural contrast always delights those who see it. A challenge for visitors are “luck balls.” If you can throw a ball into the turtle-shaped target stone, good luck will be your reward.

Luck balls on which the Chinese character 運, which means luck, is inscribed (100 yen/ 5 pieces). Make a wish and throw it into the turtle-shaped target stone.

Rabbits are oracles of Udo Shrine. You can receive a blessing by stroking the Nadeusagi, which literally means “a stroking rabbit.”

The main shrine is located inside the cave facing the ocean. Enjoying the charms of Mother Nature is one of the main attractions of Udo Shrine.
