Academic information
In April 1995, the newly developed Utaki Park on top of a small hill is where the Gushi Utaki (sacred place) is located. A splendid red tile-roofed shrine was built in July 1993. Some incense burners are enshrined in the shrine. To the front left of the shrine, there is a Hinukan (fire god) of old stacked sandstone, and an incense burner is placed there. A stone and an incense burner have also been placed on the opposite side. Before the war, on June 25th of the lunar calendar, it was a venerable place where the Gushi tug of war festival was held.
