Izumo Taishakyo Mission of Hawaii, Honolulu

3.8
The Izumo Taishakyo Mission is a Shinto shrine located in downtown Honolulu, Hawaii. It is one of the few active Shinto shrines in the United States. The wooden A-frame structure was inspired by Shimane Prefecture's classical Japanese shrine Izumo Taisha. It was designed by architect Hego Fuchino and built by master carpenter Ichisaburo Takata.


The primary kami of this shrine is Ōkuninushi and Hawaii Ubusuna-no-Kami. Also enshrined are Okinawa Shrine, Naminoue Shrine, Futenma Shrine, Inari Shrine, and Ebisu Shrine, and Waianae Ugikami.
The shrine is the site of the annual New Year's Day hatsumōde as well as other events throughout the year. A replica of the Hiroshima Peace Bell is on view. The annual Hiroshima Commemoration and Peace Service is held at Hawaii Izumo Taisha to commemorate the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

  • Love the structure. No fasteners, like a 3D puzzle. Although it has not been constructed over a traditional base. But I guess this is as close as you may get while complying to building codes! Follow the tradition, it is fun!
