Osasahara-jinja Shrine

The main shrine is a national treasure, and was constructed in the Muromachi period (1336 to 1573). It is characterized by the detailed and skillful carvings that decorate its exterior, the like of which are rarely seen in shrine construction elsewhere. Furthermore, Yorubeike Pond, located in the grounds on the right hand side, is said to be bottomless, supposedly never drying up regardless of how long the region goes without rain.
