One of the three main shrines bearing the name Hachimangu, Iwashimizu Hachimangu Shrine was dedicated to a god for the protection of the nation in 860. After the main shrine was restored by Oda Nobunaga and its cloister rebuilt by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Tokugawa Iemitsu built an additional ten shrine buildings in 1634, all of which are a part of this National Treasure.
