  •   Get off the bus and go up the stairs immediately, but hard to walk during rain and snow. So great shrine, just watching the namahage Museum not be enough....

  • This is a great shrine. Or elevation in the old shrine in the mountains of 567 m dating back to 1900, is.... Is truly a holy land stands of the 1,100 year-old environment Kaya. In January, February and the shrine events that followed is Kansai said so long to the snow season when not I came to visit. "Shinzan" akitakomachi reaping their parishioners to this shrine with the holy water in the local brewery caused a stir with sake. Buy only one not sold in this shrine, I went back.

  • OGA namahage will talk to shinzan shrine, because the namahage demon, not the messengers of God came down from the mayama and Motoyama (surface mount)... it is. February famous namahage purple lights Festival is held every year. And then ransacked the Office through a Deva gate and sells amulets, to pray at the shrine (the sanctuary). Just because home is fine, but the other? (Seems the Ganesha statues are enshrined), temple building is decorated Portable Shrine donated by Yakushi (remnants of the new schools multiple times), the satake clan and 歓喜天 Kaya of the 1,000 year old trees (prefecture designated cultural asset). Etc. Go to the mountaintop is further afield, climbed up on the road next to the Yakushi okumiya (main hall), but is likely take over one hour. Also, the related to the legend of the namahage deep ' v DW "also you can go. Akita beautiful Office woman wanted to ask questions, and please tell me kindly. The grounds sells namahage talismans and amulets. Must also take a pictures put namahage masks and knives. Said to be opened in the case and write this tourist place is actually a downward to OGA sukune, the reign of the Emperor (yamatotakernomicoto's father) (i.e. the mythical age? ), Seems very old shrine. Not limited to shinzan shrine in Akita originate from the old shrine, is amazing.
