Shirayama Hime-jinja Shrine白山媛神社
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).
