One of Japan's three main money fortune shrines
The enshrined deity has been worshipped as a guardian of mountains since ancient times, and as a guardian of local industries by many people engaged in forestry, agriculture, and construction.
Thanks to the recent popularity of "power-spots" places throughout Japan thought to have special mystical energy, the shrine attracts many visitors pray for prosperity and good luck.
Okumiya (the rear shrine) of Araya Yama Jinja Shrine cannot be accessed from December ~ late April because the road is closed in winter.
