Nicknamed 'Ebessan', this famous shrine is said to have been founded by Japan's most revered historical figure, the priest-prince Shotoku-taishi, circa 600AD. These days it enshrines the Shint? god of commerce and hosts the T?ka Ebisu festival each January.
This new museum features temporary shows, including, so far, Renaissance painting to tantric Buddhist artifacts.
Founded in the 10th century, this shrine is dedicated to Sugawara Michizane, the Shintō god of scholarship. The honden (main hall) and main gate were most recently rebuilt in 1845.
