Mount Haguro is one of three mountains of Dewa Sanzan and the most accessible to tourists. The mountain has been a sacred destination of pilgrims and mountain ascetics since the 6th century. The summit (419m) is reached by the toll road or by a 2km-long trail with 2446 stone steps that takes a leisurely hour to climb.

Ideha Culture Memorial Museum, near the trailhead, explains the 1400-year history of pilgrims and Shugendo, a syncretised mountain worship. About 10 minutes into the climb from the trailhead, you will find a 30m-tall five-story pagoda standing among cedar trees. The teahouse in the middle point provides light eats including rice cakes coated with soy flour or red bean paste.

Near the summit lies a wooden shrine with red interior paint that is dedicated to the deities of the three mountains. The nearby history museum preserves artefacts such as bronze mirrors and sculptures found this area.

出羽三山の中でも、代表する山です。参道の石段は、一度はチャレンジする価値ありました。山頂まで車で行けますが、徒歩で、巨木林を見ながら、そして、五重塔を参詣するのも醍醐味です。汗かきの方々は、タオルと着替えが必要です。

歩くの大変だけと、木々の彩りが最高。

長い石段は定期的に通えば良いトレーニングになりそうですね。

毎年お正月にお詣りし、御祈祷して頂いてます。
清々しい気持ちで一年のスタートがきれますよ。

霊験あらかた、という表現がふさわしい、荘厳な場所です。
