Iwasaka (Jap.). Proto-Shinto sanctuary. The word appears only twice, once in the Nihongi, once in the Kogoshūi. The texts infer that iwasaka stands for something to be set up, together with himoroki (meaning uncertain), for worship service, which implicitly suggests that it was not intended to be a permanent sanctuary.
