Koami Jinja is one of the few surviving shrines that was constructed using wood from the cypress tree in Chuo Ward and is officially registered as a municipal cultural asset. Today’s main hall and kagura hall were constructed in 1942, and the main hall adheres to traditional design with elaborately sculptured ornaments.
The shrine holds a doburoku (crude home-brewed sake) festival annually on the same day in November. It’s regarded as one of the two major doburoku festivals in the Kanto region. Home-brewed sake will be offered to visitors in prayer for the productiveness of grain, a perfect state of health and for good luck. Don’t miss the Sato-kagura Shinto dance performance at 12:30.
