While the origin of this shrine is unclear it is said to have existed on public land in the Maginu/Tsuchihashi since olden times. In 1910,  following the enactment of the  Shrine Merger Order in 1906, it was merged into Maginu Jinja along with four other shrines, but later regained its independence. With the opening of the Tokyu Den-en-toshi Railway Line in 1966 the area flourished, and along with this  the shrine was rebuilt at a cost of ¥138 million.
