It is an old temple with a long history at a shrine built in the natural rich area of Fukuyama. Located in a place surrounded by nature in each season, it has been popular as a haven for many people. There is a track record of performing various ceremonies and events such as general marriage, prayer for passing, Hatsumode and Shichigosan, and it has been familiar to everyone in Fukuyama.
This is the oldest shrine in the region, which is said to have been enshrined as a guardian of the temple by Kaikai Kukai, the ancestor of Emperor Heijo, in the 807th year of Daido (807).
The shrine was formerly settled in Nakashu of the Ashida River, but the shrine was washed away due to the frequent floods.
In June 1633 (Kanei 10), the founder of the Fukuyama city, Katsunari Mizuno, was rebuilt in the age of Emperor Gomizuo.
In 1655, the third generation of the Mizuno family, Katsada, the third generation of the Emperor Gomitsu, prayed for his father's sickness and healing.
