This shrine was built upon the death of legendary warrior and ruler, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, as a point of spiritual contact with him. His physical remains are interred within the Hokoku-byo Mausoleum at the Hokoku Temple. The first shrine was destroyed by shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa. The present shrine was rebuilt in 1880. The principal ceremony to honor the spirit of Toyotomi is carried out here each September 18, the anniversary of his death.
