Ikaruga-jinja Shrine

The shrine is dedicated to Sugawara Michizane as a tutelary god of the old Horyuji village. It was originally built inside the Horyuji temple precinct in the 10th century by the priest Tansho, temple master of the time and descendant of Sugawara Michizane, and was later moved to the present place. Autumn Festival is held at this shrine in the middle of October every year, and during the festival, “Otabishyo” (portable shrine) is installed inside the Horyuji temple precinct.
