Kannabe Shrine

Kannabe Shrine is located just beside the mouth of Mount Kannabe, an inactive volcano now known as a popular hiking and skiing area. It is a guardian shrine for Mount Kannabe, travellers, and the town below, with ceremonies held annually to pray for the safety of those visiting the mountain. Its unique triangular shape is an extremely rare architectural design for a Japanese Shinto shrine, making it a must-see during any trip to Kannabe.
