Kawajiri Hachimangu Shrine

Kawajiri Hachimangu Shrine is said to have been founded on May 5th, 1525, with the Emperor Ojin as the god of the gods. As he fell to Oshu, he was killed by illness, so his companion sadly buried it here. The lord of the Ishishimizu Hachimangu Shrine, which was protected by the chief, was built as a sacred body, and it was said that the present Kawajiri Hachimangu Shrine was called, and then the group reportedly raised the Oshu Kiyohara family. A stone chamber was discovered from the north side of the precincts of Showa 4 and two swords and 36 arrowheads and earthenware were excavated. According to the “New edition of Sagami Kokudo Draft”, there was a huge pine tree growing along the shrine from the torii gate to the shrine. It is also said that the annual festival (formerly July 28th) was bustling with Yudate Kagura and votive sumo. <Access> From JR Yokohama Line, Sagami Line, Keio Line "Hashimoto Station" bus to "Migaki" (Bridge 01), get off at "Shiroyama General Office Entrance", 15 minutes on foot
