The core of the shrine's artifacts is regalia from both the Kasuga Wakamiya Taisha and the clan shrine of the Fujiwaras, the Kasuga Taisha. The holdings include 12th century dance masks for Bugaku, armor (one Heian sword and a few from Kamakura), a donation from Emperor Godaigo, a Tang dynasty mirror a pair of enormous lacquer drums, and a vanity set lacquered in black dating to the 12th century. Various imperial archival materials relating to the Fujiwaras and the Tokugawas complement the collection.
