About this sight

Said to have been built by Emperor Nintoku at the beginning of the fifth century, this shrine is thought to have miraculous powers to ward off misfortune, bring good luck and cure diseases. Ancient records say that prayers were offered to the gods at the shrine when a plague of epidemic proportions broke out in 826. Three camphor trees, designated protected trees by Osaka Prefecture, lie on the shrine grounds. The shrine is located south of Abe Semei Jinja Shrine.
