Utajima, the Song Island, is a small island of less than fourteen thousands populations.
The island has two most beautiful view spots. One is Yashiro shrine which was built facing the north-west near the highest cliff of the island. The island is located in the entrance of the Ise Gulf, so from there, the inside of the Gulf can be seen. Just before on the north, there is Chita Peninsula. And from the east to the north Atsumi Peninsula stretches. On the west the coastline from UJiyamada to Yokkaichi of Tsu can be seen off and on.
Going up two hundreds stone steps to the torii guarded by one pair of stone made Chinese lions and looking back, Ise sea surrounded by such a distant view is just like an unchanged eternal view.
