Kohama Kōtai-jinja Shrine

The huge muku tree in the precincts is very impressive

This shrine is dedicated to the deities Amaterasu-sumeōkami and Amenokoyaneno-mikoto and is said to have been founded in 1441. The main hall, with its gabled roof and tile roofing, was built in the latter half of the Edo Period (1603–1867). It was designated as a registered tangible cultural property of Hyogo Prefecture in 2006. Its precincts house the Kohama Ebisu Shrine, which was built in the early Edo Period by sake brewers from Kohama hoping for prosperity. Many people visit here for the Ebisu-matsuri festival in January. A huge muku tree on the precincts enjoys special preservation status in the city.


On October 25 and 26, the annual Kohama Danjiri-matsuri festival is held. Kohama Ebisu Shrine also holds the Kohama Ebisu-matsuri festival from January 9 to 11. This festival was held from the shrine’s foundation until the Meiji Period (1868–1912), when it ceased. It was revived in 1978 and has since attracted many people.
