The shrine is located on a cliff on the island and overlooks the ocean. There used to be a torii gate leading up to it.
Long ago, when Rokkenjima was called Akujikishima, a traveling shugenja built the shrine with a special mirror inside to contain the many evil spirits that were inhabiting the island, which also had the effect of sealing the Golden Witch Beatrice's power and preventing her from truly reviving. Sometime before 1986, Beatrice spoke to Shannon and convinced her to destroy the mirror, allowing her to regain her power. Soon after, a purple thunderbolt was said to have destroyed the cliff, with the torii gate and the shrine falling into the ocean.
