This shrine was first established in the year 856 when two gods are said to have come down to earth in the sea off the coast of Oarai. The two gods enshrined at Oarai Isosaki Shrine are Daikoku-sama, the god of nation building and national prosperity and Sukunahikona-no-mikoto, the god of medicine. Oarai Isosaki Shrine is associated with the nearby Kamiiso Torii Shrine Gate which stands where the gods are said to have come down to earth. This shrine gate stands dramatically on rocks in the Pacific Ocean and attracts photographers from around the world. At New Year, the sun rises directly between the pillars of the shrine gate. This shrine is also popular with fans of the anime ‘Girls und Panzer’, which is set in the town of Oarai and uses real-life locations from the town. Many of the prayer plaques at the shrine feature illustrations of the characters from the anime drawn by visiting fans.
