A shrine dedicated to Emperor Go-Toba.
Retired Emperor Go-Toba was exiled to the Oki Islands in 1221, and lived here until his death years later. Oki Shrine was built in 1939 in commemoration of the 700th anniversary of the death of Emperor Go-Toba. The shrine is built in a distinctive style of architecture unique to the islands. The shrine is known for its cherry blossoms, and many visit in early April to see the flowers. 
Emperor Go-Toba Museum is located nearby.
