Izushi Shrine is known as one of the Tajima region’s five main Shinto shrines.
The date of Izushi Shrine’s founding is unclear, but mentions of the shrine have been written in documents from as far back as the 8th century.
The main building was reconstructed in 1914 with elaborate wood carvings, and smaller buildings also dot the grounds in small secluded gardens (like the one to the left).
The gods enshrined at Izushi Shrine are Amenohibokonomikoto and Izushiyamae No Okami.
It is said that an ancient prince from modern-day Korea who came to Japan brought eight sacred treasures which are currently enshrined at Izushi Shrine.
