Temples and Shrines


Worshipers can toll the temple bell which is located in the bell tower of Hattoji Temple.

Hiyoshi Shrine is just next to Hattoji Villa.

Sometimes there is a fence net for stopping animals on the staircase to the shine.
This fence net is for stopping the animals which live on the mountain and may destroy the farms in the village.
Please slightly pull up the fence net when you enter the Shine and put it back at original condition after usage.
Inside Hiyoshi Shine, there is a tree which is said to be there for more than 600 years. It is called Castanopsis sieboldii and the Locals normally call it ‘Tree of Tumour.”  
This nickname comes from the shape of its tree trunk which resembles a tumour.
