An ancient and photogenic shrine on Mt. Haruna
Haruna-jinja Shrine is dramatically framed by the craggy rocks of Mt. Haruna on which it is built. Wander its 150,000-square-meter grounds and take in the surrounding nature.
This shrine is thought to be about 1,400 years old. People come to pray for peace, bountiful harvests, prosperity in business, and happiness in marriage.
