Area Map

Dewa Sanzan
Mt. Haguro is in the east of Tsuruoka City, and 20 km away from the mountain there are two more mountains, Gassan and Yudonosan which are collectively called the Three Mountains of Dewa. On Mt. Haguro there are many valuable assets including Sanjin-Gosaiden which is a registered important cultural property and a five-storied pagoda which is a national treasure five-storied pagoda. The main shrine of Gassan Shrine is on the summit of Gassan. There is no shrine building put on Yudonosan as the mountain itself is seen as the object of worship.Though the mountains are serving to Shinto gods, they also have been respected as a training site of Japanese mountain asceticism-shamanism, making it a valuable shrine retaining the ambience of the syncretism of Shinto and Buddhism.
