  • Had for a long time, this shrine has been, but revisit in a long time, I was impressed all over again its splendor. Understand and truly is not only a national treasure. Beauty small drifts. Early Muromachi period, 1370 Magnus 弘世 shrine was established in said. Then haiden, Mori motonari in 1539, donated it. Was not aware and had a shrine to be trapped in the Hagi Mouri, Temple was built in this area. Would have become a habit to Kameyama hachimangu shrine and the Akama shrine is close to new year's day also. Incidently, Yamaguchi Prefecture is not treasure building only by three places. Most old Chofu Gong Temple, built in 1327. Followed by 1370's Sumiyoshi shrines. Five-story pagoda in Yamaguchi's have been founded in 1442. It would be extravagant architecture in the Edo period, the nature of the tozama Mori.
