Established in 2007, UNOPORT13 is a volunteer community made up of 13 executive and professional women working together to promote UNO Port and Tamano City. Led by Sadako Miyake the group includes business women, artists, public employees and a university professor. As a result of the recent influx of visitors to Uno, Naoshima, Benesse House and Chichu Art Museum, UNOPORT13 made this map to introduce foreign visitors to some of the local historic sites and legends of Uno.
Chikkou Hachiman Shrine
Originally, this ground was named the Hirogata Salt Field. The Shiogama Shrine here was dedicated to the Salt Pot God.
At the end of the Meiji era, Chikkou Hachiman Shrine was built in the same precincts of this shrine. The new shrine was moved here from Tai Hachiman Shrine.
