"It is unclear when this shrine was built, but it is said that the Jinguu Empress (170-269) installed three sake barrels on the mountain behind the shrine before departing on an expedition to the Korean peninsula, and constructed the shrine upon safe return as a display of gratitude. The grounds are extensive and according to the Yamashiro Tsuzuki Gunshi record, the Shinto priests that served here worshiped the deity Iwainushi-no-Kami. The main hall was rebuilt in the 9th year of Meiji (1876). There are two pillars and the roof is special because it is the only shrine in Yamashiro with both a plover gable (chidori hafu) and a Chinese gable (nokikara hafu). It is said that the Kusen hakkai no ishi (stones representing the nine mountains and eight seas that form the centre of the Buddhist view of the world) that the Empress brought back are still here. In addition, it is said that members of the Nakatomi sake brewing family taught sake brewing and worshiped their ancestral gods here. In Kyotanabe City, both this shrine and Saga Shrine have ties to sake brewing. The deities enshrined here are the god Tsuhayamusubi-no-kami and the Oujin Emperor (201-310). There is a large lake nearby, and the beauty of this shrine transforms with the seasons, surrounded by verdant green leaves in summer and colored leaves in autumn."
