A shrine with beautiful vermillion suitenmon that was dedicated to Emperor Antoku, who died at a young age after being defeated in battle.
The "Sentei festival," a memorial service festival, is held every year in May, and the "Joro-dochu," where women are dressed in colorful, lady-in-waiting costumes, is a must see.
