This Shinto shrine is located at the southwestern foot of Mount Fuji, Japan's highest mountain. Since long ago, people have revered the shrine as ichinomiya.
This particular district centered around Sumpu Castle has been the political and administrative center of this region since the 14th century, well over 600 years.
This Shinto shrine was built to enshrine the soul of Lord Tokugawa Ieyasu and to worship him as a deity.
