  • Japanese/Okinawan: 安須森御嶽 (Asumui utaki)

Asumui utaki is a traditional Okinawan sacred grove, an utaki, located at Hedo no misaki, at the northern tip of Okinawa Island. According to some accounts, it was the first utaki created by the creation deity Amamiku. A site traditionally said to be the tomb of King Gihon (r. 1249-1259) is located nearby.
