History

This is the third of the shrines I visited in Kawasaki's Tama-ku following Gotanda Jinja and Negishi Inari Jinja. This shrine was said to have been founded by Yoshizawa Hyogō (?), a retainer of the Takeda clan in charge of transporting supplies, when he returned to the Noborito area to resume a life of farming. The main hall was washed away when the Tama River overflowed its banks in 1580: it was rebuilt on what had been the Nakamura estate. It seems that there was a torii dating to 1794 a little in front of the present torii, but this, along with the main hall, was destroyed by a storm, probably sometime during the 1840s. The main hall was rebuilt in 1853. The roof was originally thatching  but owing to the high cost of maintenance it was replaced by tiles in 1953.
