Oita ken Gokoku shrine

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.
