At the Hotaka Shirine, the supreme God of the Japan's Nothern Alps is worshiped and thus many hikers go there to pray for safety during thier journy. More interestingly, this God is said to be originally the sea God of "Azumi" tribe that migrated to Azumino from Northern Kyusyu island a long time ago. So the God at Hotaka Shirine seems the only sea God in Japan which protects peace of mountains in a way.

In fact, Azumino region has many "Ofune-Matsuri (ship festivals)" in which the locals drag ship-shaped Mikoshi (portable shrine) in each district. Among them, Hotaka Shrine holds the biggest Ofune-Matsuri on 27th September every year and this is worth watching it.

The shrine is 5 mis walk from JR Hotaka Station and also on the way to Daio Wasabi farm. For further information, you can stop by Azumino Tourist Information Centre in front of the station and get the English leaflet for your visit!!

Peaceful historical shrine. Their old Nogaku stage is worth to see. 5 minutes from Hotaka station by walk.

The shrine was crowded with people visiting that day. The shrine itself is beautiful and surrounded by some nice high trees.

We encountered the Autumn Festival in Hotaka-Shrine in Hotaka, Azumino, Nagano when we visited this shrine to send my most sincere thanks to her guardian deity for my granddaughter's sound growth. Don't your think that the things that is hanged from the fringe of the float very similar to the Polish flag?

Minemiya is enshrined at the summit of Okuhotakadake, 3,190m above sea level, so it is not a place that can usually be visited. Okumiya is also enshrined on the banks of Myojin Pond in Kamikochi, and I have visited there myself, but you cannot use cars or buses and have to walk along the mountain path.
Even if you can't visit those places, this is the main shrine built in a village and can be reached on foot from Hotaka Station on the JR East Oito Line.
There is a splendid worship hall in the quiet forest. Goshuin stamps are available for roadside gods and ones that change monthly.
