The fifth Shogun Tsunayoshi was responsible for establishing this shrine in 1706. The particular style of architecture here is known as gongenzukuri. Because the majority of the structures are original, the shrine is now an important cultural property. Buddhist influences can be seen in the motifs incorporated in the two-story main gate. The extensive grounds include a shrine stage (kagura-den), massive Cedar and Gingko trees, and a carp pond. The shrine is also noted for its wisteria and its azaleas; a great time to visit is during the Azalea Festival, which is held between April 8th and May 5th annually.
