Mitsumine Shrine

Located at an altitude of 1,110 m on Mt. Mitsumine, this is a miracle-working shrine and a sacred place for mountain worship that has attracted followers since olden times.

Not only the large main sanctuary, but also the hall of worship and the remote rear shrine will hold you in awe.

The shrine's komainu (guardian dog statues) are enshrined as wolves, called Oinu-sama (honorable dogs), rather than foxes, reminding us of the strong feelings of the people who eked a living from the mountains in those times.
