Oyamazumi Shrine is Ehime Prefecture's oldest shrine that is said to be the overall head shrine of the over 10,000 Yamazumi and Mishima Shrines around Japan.
In the center of the shrine grounds is an enshrined 2,600-year-old camphor tree, as well as many Important Cultural Properties such as the main and front shrines. Here, you can experience a mystical atmosphere where the passage of time is forgotten. Since this shrine is dedicated to the gods of the sea, mountains, and warriors, many past military commanders donated arms in hopes of military success or in thanks for victory in battle. These are exhibited in the Treasury Museum located on the grounds, which houses 80% of the arms and armor that are designated as National Treasures or Important Cultural Properties in Japan.
