Dating from 887, this small shrine was built to speed the recovery of the Emperor Uda from a serious illness. Its long pathway is lined with stone lanterns, and the main buildings enshrine Sukunahikona no mikoto, Emperor Ojin, and Sugawara Michizane. It is considered the guardian shrine for people who live in the adjacent neighborhoods of Shishigadani, Honenin, and Nanzenji. The shrine's annual procession in May involves some 50 people, two horses, and a mikoshi (portable shrine).
