Origin of the Ichino-Torii at the West (from Kashima Shrine official website)


In the past, Ounotsu, the westmost Ichinosei torii, is a key source of economic and cultural trips by water transport, and at the same time it is the gateway to Kashima Shrine visit, also depicted in "60 more state sights" in Hiroden Utagawa during the Edo period The landscape was familiar as a waterfowl torii. The current torii was completed in June 2013, and weather-resistant steel materials manufactured by Nippon Steel Sumikin Kabushiki Kaisha are used. It is 18.5 meters high from the bottom of the river, 22.5 meters wide and is magnificent about 2.5 times the old torii.
