Iga Hachimangu Shrine was built to safeguard the Tokugawa and they maintained it with great care. It is said that Tokugawa Ieyasu also visited the shrine whenever there was a big battle. Iemitsu, Ieyasu's grandson, extended Iga Hachiman-gu Shrine to enshrine Ieyasu as a god. Visitors can experience the beauty of Japan at the shrine's pont and the silhouette of the stone bridge inside the shrine's grounds. While it's beautiful in any season, July is particularly lovely when the pond is filled with pink lotus flowers.
