Kami-no-Midō (inner Sanctuary)
Important cultural property
Kamakura Period: late 12th - early 14th c.
This sanctuary is said to have been originally constructed during the 8th century, according to the wishes of Toneri Shinnō, crown prince under Emperor Ten mu. The current structure, however, was built during the Kamakura Period. Within the Inner Sanctuary is enshrined a Heian-period Sakyamuni triad, protected by a Muromachi-period set of four heavenly guardians.
