Mount Daisen, also called Oyama, was the highest mountain in Hoki Province. Halfway up the mountain is the Daisen Buddhist temple, and on the summit is the Ogamiyama Shinto shrine. The mountain held a very important religious significance, and its shrine was considered the most sacred place in the region.
