  • Yakumo Shrine is said to have started with the recommendation of Gionsha (Yasaka Shrine) in Kyoto by Yoshimitsu Shillasaburo, who saw the residents suffering from the plague that was spreading in this area, and is known locally as the Shrine for The Evil World. It is renamed Yakumo Shrine at the Meiji Restoration, and it is called "Yakumo-san" and "Otenno-san" etc. in local lye though it was called Kamakura Gionsha and Gion Tennosha, etc. from the origin of Gion sha. The festival was held tonight and the neighboring residents were preparing for this day.

  • The construction is not certain, but it is thought that it is based on "Fudoki", and the Tenno of the gate is the original. It is said that the current shrine is built in the Tenpo three years. Susa man life is a god known in the "Kojiki", "Japan", especially Susa man life is violent, and the legend that it was exterminated with the myth and the eight-ki snake hidden in the rock door of Heaven Angry Amaterasu is well known.
