The five-tiered pagoda of Dewa Sanzan is thought to be the oldest tower in the Tohoku region, with the current structure having likely been built approximately 600 years ago, and the pagoda’s history going back even further than that. The 29-meter-tall wood pagoda has been designated a National Treasure.

In 2019, a Buddhist image in the pagoda normally hidden from view will be open for the public to see (through November 30).

Nearby grows an ancient Japanese cedar tree, 10m in circumference and approximately 1,000 years old.
