Worship Sanctuary at Hikosan Jingu Shrine


The worship sanctuary at Hikosan Jingu Shrine was a large lecture hall at Reisenji Temple in the time of mountain asceticism and is now a Government-Designated Important Cultural Asset. Said to have been originally built in 740, the current structure was rebuilt in the early Edo Era (1616) using a donation made by the feudal lord of the Kokura domain at the time, Hosokawa Tadaoki. Although the shrine employs an ancient form of Japanese construction, it includes Chinese patterns in places, and the magnificence of its large dimensions and scale along with its subtle attention to details gives it an imposing sense.
