Myogi Shrine

Myogi Shrine is located at the eastern foot of Mt. Hakuun, the main peak of Myogi, famous for its oddly-shaped rocks and mysterious stones, and occupies a scenic spot with old cedar trees. The shrine was originally called Hakoso no Okami, and later changed to Myogi.

The main shrine, the hall of worship, and other structures on the temple grounds were built in the early to mid-Edo period, and are magnificent in their Edo period architectural style. The stonewalls under the old palace, 10 meters high, and other stone walls in various places are incomparably skillful in their workmanship, and together with the bronze Otorii gate and other structures are designated cultural properties.
