Built by the Fujiwara family in 768 at the time of Heijo-kyo, this Shinto shrine is one of the most important in Japan. In accordance with the Shinto need for purification, the shrine is destroyed and rebuilt every 20 years.

Approaching the shrine, the visitors will walk along a path of 3000 lanterns, 2000 of which are made of stone, and 1000 of bronze.
