Fuchu Hachimangu (Shrine of the God of War)
The ancient and historical Fuchu Hachimangu Shrine is set in the northeast of the Kasugayama Castle ruins, secluded to the north of the museum.
Beginning with Uesugi Kenshin, this shrine has been revered by lords of the past, and remains one of the main shrines in Echigo (Niigata).
During the Warring States period (Sengoku Jidai), Naoetsu was the most prosperous fuchu (prefecture) in all of Echigo (Niigata).
More than 380 years have passed since this shrine was built by the lords, and although the shrine was destroyed by fire during the turbulence of the times many cultural properties and valuable artifacts are left intact.
Within the grounds there is presently a wide park area, which is treasured by the local residents as a recreation site rich with water and green nature.
