The famous mystical power central! “Togakushi Shrine” This shrine was developed as the base for the mountain worship towards Mt. Togakushi. It used to be a temple that assembled a number of pilgrims’ lodgings, and was turned into a Shinto shrine that is deeply associated with deities from the myth of “Opening of Amanoiwato” and was worshiped by many people, after the Meiji period. It consists of five buildings, each named Okusha, Chusha, Hokosha, Kuzuryusha and Hinomikosha.
Amongst old cedar trees stands a magnificent shrine preserving the appearance of the time of Shinto-Buddhist amalgamation atop 270 stone-steps. Enshrined deity is Amenouwaharunomikoto, who is the child of the deity of Chusha.
