History

It is a Shikinai-sha (a shrine listed in Engishiki laws) where Sangi (councilor) TACHIBANA no Naramaro is said to have made a request to transfer the deity in 789. There is a record that the shrine was given the status of Shorokui (Senior Sixth Rank) in 851. During the Jisho era, four associated deities were enshrined in the shrine. The shrine was listed as a sonsha (a village shrine) in 1876 and in 1882 as a gosha (a regional shrine).
