The enshrined deities are Futsunushikami and Futsunushihimekami, husband and wife gods. The shrine was established at the dawn of the Heian period and dedicated to Kudara-no-Sukunenagatsugu and the ancestors of the Asukabe clan. Listed as a Myojin Taisha, the most important kind of shrine in the Engishiki, an ancient list of government statutes, imperial envoys were dispatched from the court to attend shrine festivals. The shrine was lost to a fire during war with Oda Nobunaga, and the current shrine is a reconstruction built in the Edo period by a priest named Kongoｒinji. A number of storied historic ruins can be found on the shrine grounds, including unusual "Hayatoishi" depicting human bodies with animal faces and the stone monument that served in Kusunoki Masashige's escape from his foes in an ancient revolution.
