Konpiragu Shrine
金比羅宮

  • Shrines

It is a shrine of combination of Shinto with Buddhism and the guardian angel of the traffic on the seas

but it was the guardian angel of the lives of the common people in the Edo period.

The common people could not travel freely in the Edo period, and they were only allowed to visit Ise Shrine

and Konpiragu Shrine,

that is why it was a popular shrine among the common people.

In addition, it is famous for 785 steps of stairs up, and the attraction to climb in palanquin is interesting.
