Motomachi Itsukushima Shrine

This shrine enshrines Shimizu Benten and Susui Benten, which had been enshrined on Susuijima, Yokohama Village since about 700 years ago, during the Genroku era. I was enshrining the Shintai. However, due to the prohibition of Shinbutsu-shu in the Meiji Restoration, it was separated from Zotokuin Temple, and a shrine was built at 1-15 Motomachi as Itsukushima Shrine, becoming the guardian of Motomachi. The deities are Ichikishimahime, Takiribime, Tagitsuhime, and Konohanasakuya, all of whom are goddesses. The shrine (Yashiro) was destroyed by fire in the Great Kanto Earthquake, but a temporary hall was built with the gift of your lord, and in the early Showa period it was relocated to the area of 5-208 Motomachi and rebuilt. In World War II, he returned to the ashes again, but in 1958 he built a reinforced concrete shrine with the enthusiasm of his worshipers, and continues to this day. Motomachi Itsukushima Shrine is also a god of business prosperity, prayer for success, and marriage, and is the guardian deity of the development and prosperity of Motomachi since Motomura. In the precincts, Kotohira Shrine and Kotai Jingu donated by the Ishikawa family, who was the owner of the area, are also enshrined as the last shrine.
