Shinzan Shrine

This is an old shrine that dates back to the era of Emperor Keiko, when Takenouchi-no-Sukue enshrined two gods here, Ninigi-no-mikoto and Takemikazuchi-no-mikoto, in wish of the completion of his mission and the security of the nation. Since the Heian era (794–1185), the shrine has become a sacred place of syncretic worship for both Shinto and Buddhism. It is also associated with the rituals of Namahage.
