This shrine is located inside of Takaoka Kojo Park. Thought to have been built in the Nara period or earlier, this ancient and honorable shrine is the only shrine in Etchu Province selected as a Myojin Taisha, the highest rank of shrine in the Engi-Shiki. The shrine venerates Ninigi-no-mikoto, said to grant blessings of bumper crops and prosperity in business. 200,000 people visit the shrine each year during their annual new year's day festival. Imizu Saryo, a cafe area added during renovations of the shrine's event hall, is a place to enjoy the seasonal scenery along with exclusive items such as their original blended coffee, herb tea, Futan matcha tea au lait, and more.

Toyama Main Areas
Toyama is one of the three prefectures that house the Japanese Alps, with its southern and eastern borders comprising one long stretch of mountains, out of which the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is forged. While traditional crafts fill the northern coastal cities of Toyama and Takaoka, thatched roof houses offer unrivalled views against a backdrop of fantastic scenery at Gokayama in the mountainous area in the south of the prefecture.
