Chichibu AreaChichibu City
The shrine is believed to have a history of 2,000 years, stretching all the way back to the era of Emperor Keikō.
The faith of Mt. Mitsune spread during the Kamakura period, and the place was revered by Hatakeyama Shigetada and Nitta Yoshioki. Especially the Kishū family's gift to the shogun, during the Tokugawa period, is kept as a valuable shrine treasure to this day. Further, the “15 Nights・Moon Reading Festival” takes place during the autumn, announcing the arrival of autumn to the Chichibu’s mountains.
