Kuwayama-jinja Shrine

Built in 709, Kuwayama-jinja Shrine is also known as Kuwayama Daimyojin or Yata-jinja Shrine. Long ago, the area around this shrine was a lake of mud, but according to legend, Onamuchi no Mikoto (the Shinto god enshrined here) took a hoe and cleft open the Uketa Gorge to drain the water, and gave the people a harvest in the form of cultivated fields. In thanks for this, it is said that the local people enshrined him here with the name Kuwayama Daimyojin. Kuwayama-jinja Shrine is also known as a spot for viewing colorful autumn leaves.
