Koganeyama-jinja Shrine (黄金山神社)

Shrine

This shrine is located in Kinkasan, Ayukawahama, Ishinomaki City. The shrine was built in celebration of the discovery of the first gold mine in Japan in 749 in what is now Wakuya Town. The first gold mined there was then presented to the imperial court. The shrine, which stands on Mt. Kinkaoff the shores of the Oshika Peninsula, enshrines Kanayamahiko-no-kami and Kanayamahime-no-kami, the Shinto deities of gold. The shrine has also venerated the Buddhist deity Benzaiten ever since the age of syncretism of kami and buddhas. Many have come to worship Benzaiten as the deity of luck and economic fortune.

          Lying along the northeastern coast of Japan, Miyagi prefecture is home to lashings of natural parks, oysters, and hot springs. While the bustling city of Sendai offers some simple city entertainment, it's the Matsushima islands that deserve the most attention, having boosted the prefecture's reputation as one of Japan's most scenic views.
