Tsuna-jinja Shrine

Japan Heritage/Architecture/Shrine/Temple
The Tsuna Shrine was built on the grounds of the Obadera Temple, the Utsunomiya family's ancestral temple, in 1194. Tradition holds that the Tsuna Shrine was erected with an invitation extended to the tutelary deity of Ichinomiya Kamo Shrine in Tosa (now Kōchi Prefecture in Shikoku) to occupy it. The shrine was rebuilt during the Daiei period (1521 - 1528). The Main Hall of the shrine, together with the Ōkura Shrine’s main building, have been designated important cultural properties by the Japanese government.
