The shrine is dedicated to a deity of war and it is said that this was built in 660. In contrast with the derivation, the precinct was quiet. The war god enshrined here has been taking a rest for a long time. This country has never made war after WWII. I thought it was better that the deity should wait for the show from everlasting to everlasting.
The gate seen at the end of the road is Roh-Mon gate built in 1642 and it is appointed national cultural asset.
