According to the shrine history, the Hyozu god was moved to Onoe (near Himeji Medical Center) in the year 787, and later the Itate god was also enshrined with it. It is said that in 1181, the newly appointed provincial governor, in an attempt to simplify the region’s circuit pilgrimage, combined the 174 shrines within the Harima borders. The shrine moved to its current location in either 1570-1578 or 1581. Norimura Akamatsu in medieval times, and feudal lords in the Edo period, worshipped there. The shrine archway (torii) donated by Tadatsugu Sakakibara is a designated prefectural historical site; the copper bell in front of the main building is a designated municipal historical site; and the three miniature versions of the three large mountains (mitsu-yama-hinagata) are designated national historical sites, while the “hitotsu-yama” and “mitsu-yama” Shinto rituals are prefectural designated historical rituals. . . .
