Essential festivals

The Torioi Festival and Don-Don-Yaki

Mt. Tenjin looks down on Sawatari town. The festival god called Okuninushi is the first of 22 pillars on the mountain. At the end of the Meiji period, they were erected to worship the god of the Kamisawatari area.

There is a stone monument named Manyokahi near the temple. It was built by Rokuemon Fukuda at the end of the Edo period (1603-1868).
