Since Okinoshima is closed to the public, Okitsu-miya Yohaisho (Worship Hall) was built on a coastal terrace on the north side of Oshima, which affords visitors an opportunity to worship the sacred island from afar.
The building of Yohaisho serves as a worship hall from which visitors can pay homage to the island.
The traditions of worshipping the island and observing the taboos have been passed down to the present day.
A shrine has been established here since the early eighteenth century, as a description of the stone monument.
On a clear day, visitors to Okitsu-miya Yohaisho can clearly see Okinoshima floating on the horizon.
