Shrine

Shirayama Hime-jinja Shrine is located on a hill in Teradomari, Nagaoka City, Niigata Prefecture, which has been the guardian deity of the local area for a long time. The shrine has been built at the top of 125 stone steps which lead up from the shrine gate. The views from the top overlooking the Sea of Japan are wonderful. The enshrined deities are the two gods, Izanami no mikoto and Kukurihime no mikoto. They draw seafaring worshippers praying for safety at sea, and the deities are also worshipped as gods of national security and rural development. The spring festival is held on May 3rd and 4th every year where the daimyo’s procession takes place along the Hokkoku Kaido (north Japan highway).

Review of Shirayamahime Shrine

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/04/04 長い階段があります。
長い階段を抜けるとある、こじんまりとした神社です。高台にあるため、日本海を見渡せ、晴れた日は佐渡まで見えるので、眺めが大変良いです。

          Found along the northwestern coast of Japan, Niigata prefecture is celebrated for its high-quality rice and breathtaking nature, most notably its spectacular mountains, whose white peaks draw in snow sports lovers from far and wide over the winter months. Hit the slopes at Yuzawa, pick out your favourite modern artist at Echigo Tsumari, or take a ferry over to Sado Island for an extra adventure.
