Sarubobo means monkey (saru) baby (bobo in Hida dialect). Some kind of faceless good luck charm. This place is easy to find. There is a small torii gate near the sidewalk. Walk in and you’ll find a footbath plus a shrine with many color varieties of sarubobos.

Easily accessible near foot of Egret Bridge. Imagine a shrine with plenty of dolls in display and free ‘golden’ footbath. Most leisure shrine ever seen in Japan.
