You often see shrines and temples shrouded in the greenery of the mountains, but Katsuura City is right on the beach, with many of its shrines having a coastal vibe. Yasaka Shrine is slightly inland, but the torii gate, the entrance to the realm of the Shinto gods, is located on Ubara Beach. It's a popular beach for leisure, and having the shrine gate in view can make for a more spiritual expedition to the sea.
