This is the most sacred site in all of Okinawa.

Utaki refers to a place where the gods descend down upon the Earth. This place is said to be built by the god that created Okinawa, Amamikiyo. A road densely overgrown with trees leads to Sangui - two massive stones leaning against each other and a truly impressive sight.
