A statue of En no Ozunu, the founder of Japanese mountain asceticism, once stood on the grounds of the shrine's predecessor, Sannogu Shrine's Sekisen-ji Temple. Now enshrined in the Gyosha-do Hall, it has become an object of worship for pilgrims. An assembly of representatives for Hiyoshi Shrine hold lectures on asceticism. Parishioners and worshippers participate in a Buddhist rite of cedar stick burning, and the shrine priest, together with about 10 mountain priests, prays for the peace and safety of the parish, the fulfillment of wishes, and for world peace.
