Kamata Jinja (Shrine) ( No.18 block, Higashimikuni 2-chome)
In the Muromachi Period (1338 - 1573) the local magnate, BUSSHOIN Matasaburo, received a permit to build a franchise shrine known as “Muro no Myojin” as the tutelary deity of the village. The shrine received its name in 1909 because the area surrounding the shrine was overgrown with cattails (Kamata = “field of gama”) lending a pastoral atmosphere to the spot. Even today the shrine has a pleasant atmosphere because of the tall Japanese cinnamon trees (kusu-no-ki) within the precincts. Photo: Kamata Jinja
