Yokoyama Hachiman Shrine

It is a very old and historic shrine that is said to have been founded in 681. It is said that Minamoto no Yoshitsune and his servants visited the shrine for a pilgrimage and stayed overnight there. Saburo Shigeie Suzuki, a vassal accompanying him, was quite old, so he remained at Yokoyama Hachiman Shrine, changed his name to Juzaburo, and became the head priest of this Hachiman Shrine.
