Tenshozan Shrine was built in 1931, and its seclusion in the mountains among many stately trees and beautiful seasonal flowers contributes to the feeling of its perfect harmony with nature.
The Sun Goddess, the Great God of Sarutahiko, and the Great God of Taisei are enshrined there. At the annual festival on May 22nd, many people make a pilgrimage to this shrine from all across Japan, and it becomes a site of lively commotion for the festival’s duration.
