【Divine Favor】business success, good-luck, improvement of art

Since before Tokugawa Ieyasu’s Edo Period, The Hanazono Shrine has occupied the important position of protector of the district.

In 1780 and 1811, this shrine established a theater in the precincts and started performance such as plays and dances in order to reconstruct the shrine burnt down by fire. From around this time, many worshipers began to pray for improvement of art in this shrine.
