Izusan Shrine



The Izu region is named after the Izusan Shrine, which is located 170 m above sea level. During the war between the Genji and Heike clans, the Genji warrior Minamoto no Yoritomo raised an army in Izu and worshipped at the shrine, asking for divine assistance. Tokugawa Ieyasu is also believed to have paid an incognito visit to the shrine to pray for dominion over all of Japan.
