In Dewa Sanzan looked up at as Haguro god deified in three shrines in Kumano district size honorific title of a Japanese god of the mixture of Buddhism and Shintoism to last by the gods and Buddha separation of "thing God as the honorific title of a Japanese god" or the Meiji more than 1200, it was in a mountain of God. When Dewa Shrine ranked among the votive offerings made by a provincial governor small company in March, 1873, Nishikawa (Nishikawa) Suka (I do it) male () of a few 35 years old from Saga took up its new post as the first chief priest.
