This shrine was founded in 1875 C.E. to honor the memory of those who were killed in the war. About 200 Bungo plum trees bloom from early February to mid-March and about 500 cherry blossoms in early April here. The observatory has a splendid view of the Rinkai industrial zone and even the Shikoku island on a sunny day. Why not hike from the foot of the mountain to the shrine’s Torii gate through a path in a beautiful forest. You can see unique objects such as Japan’s largest rake, a lucky charm believed to bring in good fortune, and an arrow thought to drive off evil spirits.
