A small Shinto shrine stands just near Konnoh Hachiman-Gu. So my next destination was the shrine. After leaving the precinct of Konnoh Hachiman-Gu, I crossed the street and entered into another precinct. Unlike Konnoh Hachiman-Gu, this shrine was modest. And many red and round lanterns were hung on the edge of the precinct.

These shrines face each other across the street. And the deities enshrined were different from each other. One was devoted to Emperor Ojin and the other devoted to Ukanomitama. At any rate, I thought they stood too close. The deities could be business rivals.
