Make-jinja Shrine

Make-jinja Shrine was built long ago, and it is a shrine listed with the highest rank by the Japanese government. In 1079, it was visited by the Emperor Shirawa, and the shrine was honored with an imperial scroll, "Funai Dai-ichi Make-jinja." During the Edo period (1603-1868), the shrine also became a place of prayer for Koide, daimyo of the Sonobe Clan. All of the shrine buildings date to the Edo period, and both the main shrine and its auxilliary buildings have thatched roofs. The shrine grounds have a relaxed and sacred air to them.
