Please note: This article is about the temple at at Kyuden Hida. For other uses of the term, please see Temple of Yakamo (disambiguation).

The Temple of Yakamo at Kyuden Hida housed the private shrines to three of the Hida family's greatest ancestors -- Kisada, Yakamo, and Osano-Wo. It was also known as the Temple of Persistence, Sun, and Thunder. [1] It was originally devoted to Osano-Wo, but later was expanded and rededicated to include Yakamo and Kisada. [2]

Admitance Edit

Only those of the central Hida line and those closest to them had been admitted, and no non-Crab had ever seen the temple. The temple's stained glass windows opened to allow the morning sun to flood the room. The glass was obtained through the Crab's Unicorn allies. [1]

Artifacts Edit

The temple held an artifact from each ancestor--Yakamo's Wakizashi, Kisada's Tessen, and a shard of wood split from the gate of Shiro Shiba that was struck by lightning by Osano-Wo. This was where the Crab Clan Champions went to to commune with their ancestors. Hida O-Ushi began the tradition of visiting it in order to seek guidance from her divine ancestors in moments of doubt, a practice that both her sons adopted after becoming champion. Only a few Crab outside the central Hida line had been admitted. [1]
