The shrine enshrines Takamahikojin, the supreme deity of the Katsuragi clan, an ancient powerful clan, who ordered a messenger to take over the country to Izumo.
The shape of the shrine is old, and like the Omiwa Shrine in Sakurai City, the deity is a mountain.
Like the Omiwa Shrine in Sakurai City, the deity's body is a mountain (Hakumo Peak behind the shrine), so there is no main shrine.
