Shinzan is the name of the mountain on which this shrine is located.
One of the most revered on the peninsula, Shinzan Shrine is deeply associated with the Namahage rites. Every Februay, the Namahage Sedo Festival is held on these grounds surrounded by majestic cryptomerias.
10,000 Buddhas of Shinzan
This hall, once part of a temple called Koboji, holds more than 10,000 wooden Buddhist statues despite being only 5.4 meters on each side.
This exceedingly rare site is of particular folk-religious interest.
