Elevation: 629m. Mt. Sanage has been worshiped as a sacred mountain since ancient times. The main Sanage-jinja Shrine at the foot of the mountain, and the eastern and western shrines on the mountain slopes are collectively known as Sanage Sanja Daimyojin.
There are also many notable spots, including the summit of Mt. Sanage, with its views of Mt. Haku and Mt. Ontake in the distance; huge boulders and stones like the boat-shaped Ofunaishi, and the Toromiru Water Mill, and both novice mountaineers and families enjoy hiking here.
