A shrine dedicated to Abe no Seimei, an onmyoji (a practitioner of Japanese esoteric cosmology) from the Heian period. According to tradition, Abe no Seimei once resided in a hermitage in this vicinity. In the past, the area was abundant with marshes and was plagued by "mamushi" (venomous snakes), but it is said that Abe no Seimei performed prayers to confront these challenges, leading to the construction of this shrine in this location.
Even today, the shrine continues to attract believers from all over the country as a place of protection against evil spirits and calamities.
