Izanagi-jingu Shrine

It is the text from here.

According to Japanese myth, Awaji Island is believed to be the origin of Japan. At Izanagi-jingu Shrine, the god Izanagi and the goddess Izanami, who created the land of Japan, are worshipped. Every month on the 22nd at 6:30pm, a special evening shrine viewing is held. The front shrine, main gate and great Torii are illuminated with ten lights. Moreover the entrance path to the shrine is lit with 300 candles, enfolding visitiors in fantastical atmosphere.
