Akagi-jinja Shrine

Shrine
The Akagi-jinja Shrine is located at the top of Mt. Akagi. It has been known as a mountain where gods have resided since ancient times. Mt. Akagi is the main enshrined deity and Akagi Daimyojin is worshiped as the god of the lake. On the first Saturday of August, the Soke, or Grand Master, in charge of Ogasawara style Japanese horseback archery etiquette and his disciples hold a Japanese archery dedicatory match. At night, paper lanterns are set adrift in a ceremony called Toronagashi accompanied by a firework display and every year many tourists visit the festival. The Autumn Festival held on the national Sports day in October is also very popular.

    鮮明な赤色を放つ赤城神社は、赤城山と大沼とのコントラストが美しかったです。春夏秋冬4種類の風景が描かれたお守りは印象的でした。気に入った絵柄のものがあれば購入されてはと思います。
