History

There is little information available on this small shrine in the Nagano countryside. What follows is from the Nagano Jinjacho page on the shrine.  It is said that it is a bunshi of the world heritage site Kumano Hayatama Taisha (熊野速玉大社)​, but there is no documentary proof of this. The head priest (Gūji  宮司) is Matsusawa Shigeki (松沢茂樹,) who serves the same function at Tsukui-izumi Jinja and several other jinja in the area.
