Amarume Hachiman Shrine
This shrine has gathered worshippers since ancient times as the grove of the village shrine. One of three Hachiman shrines in Shonai, the main shrine was constructed in 1814 in the same style as Sanjin-Gosaidan Shrine on Mt. Haguro. The Amarume Festival is held here for three days every year from September 14–16.
