In the middle of Honshu and Shikoku, there's an island named Omishima which plays host to a Shinto shrine that served as a samurai mecca for more than a millennium. Despite being the largest island in the Seto Inland Sea and having much else to offer, Oyamazumi Shrine is a must-see, especially for those interested in samurai history and legend. Nature lovers will marvel too: Oyamazumi is nestled in a grove of hundreds of camphor trees, with some gigantic ones that are much older than the ancient shrine itself.
