The first temples were established 1,400 years ago and the mountains are still associated with Shugen-do, an ancient and very austere form of ascetic religion combining elements of both Shinto and Buddhism. When you walk through an approach lined with giant cedar trees, you will find a five-story pagoda, which is a national treasure. From there to the top of Mount Haguro, there are 2,446 stone steps flanked by 300-600 year old cedar trees.
