Muroran Hachimangu Shrine

Muroran Hachimangu Shrine

This shrine was transferred to the current location in 1875. At that time, a whale that happened to be floating in Volcanic Bay (Uchiura Bay) was bought by the Hokkaido Development Commissioner upon request and the purchase money was spent for relocation of the shrine. Thus, it is still called "Kujira (whale) Hachiman".
You will find a dignified atmosphere after you climb up more than 300 steps.
