Subsidiary Jinja

The kami of
social success

Enshrinedf Kami:Amenokoyane-Mikoto
The ancestor deity of the Fujiwara clan, Amenokoyane-Mikoto, was transferred from the present Katori Jingue in Hitachi Province, and the shrine was built as an auxiliary shrine. After that, it was enshrined in Nara (Kasuga Taisha) via Hiraoka (Hiraoka jinja) during about 770. This is why this jinja is called the former Kasuga Taisha.
The Okiage Shinto ritual and the Kayuura Shinto ritual on January 15th have been held for a long time due to the divine virtue (fortune-telling) of Amenokoyane-Mikoto.
