Interior view of the kairo (cloister) of the Upper Shrine. The cloister was rebuilt in 1828 and is now a National Important Cultural Asset. A beautiful design is painted under the eaves. Renovated in the beginning of the Showa Period, this building remains as a valuable source of information about the designs used from the Edo Period. The mikoshi (portable shrines) were made during the Momoyama or Edo Period, and seven of them remain as Prefectural Tangible Ethnological Assets.
