Mitake-san (Mt. Mitake) has received many visitors as a sacred place of mountain worship since the Middle Ages. On top of the mountain the Musashi Mitake Shrine is enshrined, which originates from the fact that Gyōki built a hall on this site and enshrined Zaō Gongen in 736 (the eighth year of Tempyō).
