Omiya Hachimangu Shrine is a historical shrine that celebrated 950 years of founding in 2013.
The worshiped deity is Emperor Ojin (Hachiman-sama) known for the god of “warding off evil” and “good-luck”. It is said that there is a devine favor of matchmaking (marriage) / easy delivery / child rearing by the firm bond of three gods worshiped with father and mother.
Also, since the religious ruins of the Yayoi era were excavated from the former premises in Omiya Hachimangu Shrine, it was discovered that this area was a sanctuary since ancient times.
