■Tentou-Zan There were three hills on Onoyama, which was previously an island off Naha: Okinogu was erected on the highest hill Tentouzan, commonly called “Kugani-mui.” Another name for the hill is Tentouzan-Umanuha. Esteemed sacred, Tentou-Zan was revered as a holy place since ancient times.
■Okinogu The deity enshrined at Okinogu, one of the Eight Ryukyu Shrines, was a sacred log.
Its origin was at Tenpozan on Onoyama and the god enshrined
within was called Amaterasu Omikami who was worshipped at Okinogu as Tenjuku Nuryuguou Onmikami.
