Lessons on Life from our Generations Past
This shrine dedicated to the Shinto god Tsukiyomi no Mikoto was built atop Mt. Kamuriki in 1754.
Locals continue to gather for a ceremony at the mountain’s base at the end of every July.
During the Meiji Era, in discussions of Mt. Kamuriki’s association with the Obasute-yama legend, a secondary prayer spot was built at the base of the mountain in 1893.
The next year a stone memorial for prayer was erected in Inariyama.
