This is the twenty-second of my ex post facto shrine reports. I visited it in April 2012 along with Tokiwa Jinja: the two are about 1.2 km apart.

There is very little information readily available on this shrine. It is not one of the twelve shrines in Mito-shi listed on the Ibaraki-ken Jinjacho home page.

Looking at the enshrined kami, note that Ōhosazaki-no-mikoto is another name for the legendary Emperor Nintoku (reigned 313-399?), Takemizuchi-no-mikoto is a kami of thunder.

And now let the photos speak.
