The shrine is famous for a pair of large and small rocks located side by side in the sea, known as Wedded rock (Meoto-iwa). The rocks serve as a torii gate to visitors offering prayers to the sunrise and to a sacred rock 700 meters offshore from Meoto-iwa. Many visitors come to pray to the sunrise especially on the Summer Solistice when the sun rises right in the middle of the rocks. Since ancient times the waters of Futamiura, as this section of the sea is called, has been the scene of misogi, a ritual immersion performed prior to visiting Ise Jingu. Inside Futami Okitama jinja there are many figurines representing frogs, which are considered auspicious symbols associated with the shrine.
