  • This shrine is enshrined at a major company in Matsumoto City, Nagano Prefecture. The wonderful atmosphere of The Nawate-dori shopping street was cut off in front of this shrine, and there was a large torii gate at the entrance. It is a fairly huge and splendid torii. It's too big to take a picture of the torii from the front. You can see the splendid shrine in front of the torii gate. It is said that it is a four-poster shrine because it enshrines the four pillars of Tenno-gochu-jin, Koko-san Reijin, Shin-ko-san Reigami, and Amaterasu-Okami. Historically, it was built in the Meiji era, but it was a very solemn shrine. It was wonderful of Ebisu Shrine of the precinct company and the neighboring Matsumoto City Invitation Hall.

It is a rare figure that two pines extend from the root part and are connected. In, the pine of the marriage. It faces the tourist-friendly Nawate Street and is easy to get into.
