Tatehikawa Jinja 舘氷川神社

This is the twenty-third of my ex post facto shrine reports .I visited it in November 2016. 

This Hikawa Jinja is said to have been built sometime between 859 and 877 by Fujiwara Nagakatsu, (藤原長勝) the Governor of Kashiwa  district, which encompassed what are now Shiki and Fushimi cities, enshrining the three kami of the Omiya Hikawa Jinja through the kanjō process.

He is also said to have built an estate among rice paddies which came into existence after he exterminated the serpents living in the local wetlands. The ruins of this estate came to be known as  Kashiwa no Shiro (柏の城) and the Tatehikawa Jinja is located in what was the estate’s south-eastern moat.

In 1907 15 shrines were merged to form the current Tatehikawa Jinja.
