Sakurayama Hachiman Shrine

Japan, 506-0858 178 Sakuramachi, Takayama City, Gifu Prefecture

This is the site of the annual autumn Takayama Festival (Hachiman Festival). Within the grounds, there are sub-shrines such as Akiba Shrine, the god of fire prevention and protection; Tenmangu Shrine, dedicated to Sugawara no Michizane; Inari Shrine, the god of bountiful grains, prosperous business, sericulture, and various industries; Kotohira Shrine, dedicated to safe maritime traffic; and Terumae Shrine, dedicated to the god of bravery and teeth. You can take your time to visit these shrines while strolling around. During the reign of Emperor Nintoku, a villainous tribe called Ryomensukuna rebelled against the emperor and threatened the people in the mountains of Hida. It is said that Naniwa Neko Takefurikuma no Mikoto, who received an imperial order from the Shogun to subjugate them, led the government army into Hida (Nihon Shoki).
