The shrine was built in 1085. The "Nagatoko," or hall of worship, is said to have been built from the late Heian period to the early Kamakura period, and has become a designated National Important Cultural Asset. A thatched hip roof rests atop 44 thick pillars, and the colonnade without walls or doors around is magnificent, and is a must-see. In addition, within the precincts of the shrine is what is said to be an 800-year old gingkgo tree, best viewed during its peak season in mid-November. It is also a designated Natural Monument in Kitakata City.
