Shinzan Shrine
Shinzan Shrine is located in Oga City, Akita Prefecture. It was established by Takenouchinosukune. When he traveled to the North region by the order of Emperor Keiko, he climbed the mountain, called Oga-Shinzan and Oga-Honzan mountain. At the top of the mountain, he prayed for peace for Japan and established this shrine.
