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.
