Travel Guide - Makata-jinja Shrine


It is said that the origin of Makata-jinja Shrine dates back 2,000 years. The current Hondo main hall of the shrine was constructed by the chief councilor of the Tokugawa Shogunate Hotta Masayoshi in 1843.
The shrine features a 1,200-year-old Japanese cedar tree in the premises. The 40-meter-tall, 8-meter circumference tree is regarded as the largest cedar tree in the Kanto region, and has been designated as a prefectural natural monument. Every year on the last Sunday of July, a festival with a traditional lion dance is held here.
