Keta Taisha Shrine

This Shrine enshrines Ookuni-nushi-no-Mikoto, which is a deity of marriage. During Nara and Heian Period, the Shrine was known as Noto-kuni Ichi no Miya (the first shrine of Noto) and has a history of 2100 years. The scenery inside the shrine is beautiful which changes with each passing season and there's a solemn but pleasant atmosphere. When Emperor Akihito visited the Shrine and the Forbidden Sacred Forest (Natural Monument) in 1983, Emperor read a Haiku about the Shrine and the Forest.
