The shrine claims to have been founded in the Taihō period (701-704 AD) by Emperor Mommu. It is located in an area of eastern Mikawa with a favorable climate, which has been settled since at least the Jōmon period. One of the treasures of the shrine is a Yayoi period dōtaku bronze bell, possibly recovered from a burial mound in the area. The shrine is mentioned as the ichinomiya of Mikawa Province in the Engishiki records from the early Heian period.
