Mikumari Shrine

Mikumari Shrine

Mikumari Shrine was said to be established around 7th century of Japan, but the present building was rebuilt in 1605 by Toyotomi Hideyori, whose father had prayed at this location for his birth. The shrine has a unique architectural style of the Momoyama Period that can be seen in the main hall, oratory, hall for votive offerings, corridors, and a two-storied gate. The Shrine is dedicated to Mikumari, a Shinto God associated with water, fertility and safe birth. In addition to Mikumari, there are 6 other lesser deities enshrined in the main hall. Mikumari Shrine is also one of four important Mikumari shrines in the former province Yamato. There is a statue of Tamayori- hime that is registered as a National Treasure of Japan. It is located in the upper Kami Senbon are of Mount Yoshino. The shrine is also popularly referred to as “Komori-san.”
