This shrine was reportedly built as a clan temple by Tachibana no Moroe in 731.
The precinct covered with overgrown trees is filled with cool air even on midsummer days, which creates a dark green shade.
The main hall of the shrine has a Kasuga-zukuri style and was rebuilt in 1687. In the precinct, there is the Tachibana Shrine, which is dedicated to Tachibana no Masashige, a descendent of Tachibana no Moroe.
In the adjacent Jizozenin Temple, there is a weeping cherry tree that is selected as one of the ten famous trees and a natural monument of the prefecture.
