Omi-jingu Shrine was established in 1940 to enshrine the Emperor Tenji who moved the capital of Japan from Asuka (Nara) to Otsu in 667. There is the Japan's first water clock, which was also made by the Emperor Tenji, on the grounds of the shrine and Rokoku-sai (Water Clock Festival) is held in honor of the clock on June 10 every year.
