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.
