This place used to be a narrow strait and a chokepoint of marine traffic because of its rapid flow during low/high tide. So, the shrine was built and had been sacred to the god of the sea since 5th to 6th centuries. Izu Mishima Myojin was divided and transferred to the shrine to pray for the victory when Minamoto no Yoritomo was going to war.More details
