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.
This shrine is dedicated to Amenouzumenomikoto, who danced in front of gods and won their applause in the myth of “Opening of Amanoiwato”. She is worshiped as the god of performing arts and good luck. The famous Saigyo Sakura is in its precinct.
