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.

  • Meet at the annual Festival in may, in the walk way (coffee shop) visited the Cafe after. To run horse riding archery range is approx. 200 m, was like shooting an arrow in the old days, but in recent years stands up to its near House smaller in width. Also, shooting an arrow to the guys and just running, riding and shooting arrows in recent years that caused the trouble, so it seems. That tradition is important, but is a pity. But on that day together in opening many leaves.
