Gods of waka worshipped by poets

Worshipped as a shrine of gods of waka by many manyo poets since the ancient times, Tamatsushima Shrine has on its premises a monument inscribed with a manyo poem written by Yamabe no Akahito when the Emperor Shomu went out in 724 about the shrine, and Ono no Komachi Sodekake Byo near the torii, which Onono Komachi reportedly hung her sleeves on. Visitors can also see Neagari Matsu (a pine tree named Tsurumatu), which is designated as a natural monument.
