Hakone Shinto Shrine was the centre of worship as the Hakone Gongen. Especially in the middle ages, it was revered by Kamakura Shoguns such as Minamoto Yoritomo, and it is the setting of the Tale of Soga. This picture was taken before 1896, because the Komainu (Korean style dogs) and the pines planted by Emperor Meiji are not seen.
