Providing divine protection to the Nanbu domain, the shrine stands as the “Nanbu Ichi-no-miya.” The main hall of the shrine was built by Nanbu Shigenao in 1648. A national treasure, the Akaito Odoshi Yoroi-kabuto (armor), also known as “Kiku-ichimon-no-yoroi-kabuto,” is stored in the repository. Today, this armor and the armor enshrined at Kasuga-taisha Shrine in Nara are considered the best examples of samurai armor existing in Japan.
