Mishima Taisha is the most historic and prestigious shrine in the area. Minamoto no Yoritomo, who ushered in the age of the samurai in the 12th century AD, is said to have prayed for victory at this shrine before fighting nemesis, the Taira Clan.

The temple grounds are very large, and many buildings, such as the main shrine, are designated as important cultural national properties. In the small pond called Shinchi, a small & beautiful shrine lies afloat. Deer brought from Kasuga Grand Shrine in Nara live in the park and don't worry, you are encouraged to feed the deer!
