This is one of the Six Shrines of Sagami. Events such as the Annual Festival, the Hamaori Festival, and the Bonbori Festival are held here. The Hachimanyama Park next to it was chosen as one of the Eight Views of Hiratsuka, and is one of a few western styled architectures built during the Meiji era in this prefecture. It is especially beautiful during seasons of cherry blossoms and roses. Built by Emperor Nintoku in year 380, this shrine was regarded as the protector of land for all of Sagami.
