According to the shrine, the shrine was built during the time of Emperor Keiko (71-130), when Takeru Nihon worshiped Mt. Kaba and worshiped the three gods, Ame-no-Middle God, Sun God, and Moon God. It is said that it is a ritual. After that, Sakanoue Tamura Maro, Kobo Daishi Kukai, successive feudal lords, military commanders, and Mt. Kaba were the training grounds for the palace of the trainees.
The atmosphere is calm and calm, which is different from the Makabe worship hall, and the precincts are clean and you can feel the depth of faith.
Beside the main shrine, there are Setsumatsusha such as Kabayama Gosha Inarisha and Tengusha.
About 5 minutes on foot from the Makabe worship hall of Kabayama Shrine, go down the road for about 300 meters and you will see the east torii gate and enter the precincts.
