Yuge Shrine

A mystical and beautiful place on a mountain trail
Yuge Shrine is a traditional shrine built in 1396. To enter visitors cross the covered “Taiko-bashi” bridge over the pond surrounding the shrine. Shrine parishioners return day after day flying flags to pray for rich harvests and the wellbeing of their families. The area around the shrine is well-known for its picturesque beauty. Along with the Taiko-bashi, the huge chinquapin trees add a solemn atmosphere to the site.
