This shrine is beautiful and worth stopping by. Best of all no entrance and is well kept. Restroom is across the street from the shrine. Many Japanese people come here for short prayers. We took a lot of awesome photos. The Shrine is just 1 block away from the ropeway.

Ancient Shrine
Apr 2019 • Couples
The Shrine is the largest shrine in Omihachiman, Shiga Prefecture It had a lot of history behind. It was first established by Takenouchi no Sukune in 131. It houses the God of War and attracted many warlords to visit and worship. Today, the Sagicho Fire Festival is held here every March. It's worth visiting.

Just another temple

We took a quick look at Himurehacimangu while walking from the canal to the cable car ropeway, but no real reason to stop for more than five minutes.

Should visit for the festivals
Jun 2015 • Solo
While this shrine is pretty, there isn't much going on if there isn't a festival. The shrine's purpose is also not readily apparent (there's a statue of a horse...but...that doesn't say much). I asked one of the priests the purpose, and couldn't understand until I asked around more. Evidently, horses were said to be the vehicles of the gods and they used live horses in religious practices in the past, but they were expensive and hard to take care of. That is also why one can find horse statues made of bronze and horse themed ema at the shrine.
Anyways, it's nice to pass through, but you should visit during the Hachiman and Sagicho festivals (in April and March respectively).

Fire festivals galore
Mar 2013
This temple has some amazing festivals held here. I attended a Taiko (drum) festival as well as Sagicho (a float, fighting, and fire festival. For a video I helped make about it follow this link: http://youtu.be/vmYFAjv67uA but even when there isn't a festival going on, this is still a beautiful place to visit. There is also a really nice hike behind it!

Great shrine and awesome festivals
Mar 2013 • Friends
Hachiman Himure, alongside Omi-Hachiman's beautiful canals, has a very relaxed atmosphere and is the site of two very cool festivals during the year. One of them, called Sagicho, is a full-on fire festival, with a lot of action, colour and movement. If you can make it in March, I totally recommend it.

Check out this video for more about Sagicho: http://bit.ly/ZCSqgN
