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.

  • Worshippers are not good. I think somehow, purification of the shrine is a high threshold, smoothly finished. It was good.

  • Whatever God has in it. And God here is fairly high rank will and grant wishes, etc...? Local people are popular. Clean and good.

  • Off Highway 151, the Toga shrine-shrine. It was a tranquil atmosphere. Through the Torii to the shrine. It was a figure and did not adorn. I guess this square people when events are held at.

  • This "pebble" is great. Pass through the gate and different atmosphere. It is without a doubt still "Ichinomiya".
