Kashihara-jingu Shrine was established in 1890 to enshrine the Japan's first Emperor Jinmu and the empress. According to Nihon Shoki (The Chronicles of Japan), the emperor acceded to the throne here in Kashihara in 660 BC.
The shrine's Honden main hall, designated as a national important property, used to be the Kashiko-Dokoro (Palace Sanctuary) in the Kyoto Imperial Palace and was moved here.
