The shrine is dedicated to the worship of a wooden statue that was caught in a fisherman's net during the Nara period. The god in this shrine is well known to be the "God of Abstinence (from alcohol)." The most famous tourist spot here is the sacred tree, "Okusu," where it is said that a person who circles around the trunk will extend his life by a year. The tree, which is about 24 meters around, and is over two thousand years old, was certified in 1992 by the Ministry of the Environment as the second largest giant tree in Japan; it is also a designated natural treasure.
