The Honden, dating to 1826, is a Prefecturally-designated Important Cultural Property. Preserved building records (棟札) are a City-designated Important Cultural Property (Historic Materials). There is an annual rice-planting festival and a pond of pink lotus. The main kami enshrined here is Kamitsukenokimitaji no mikoto (上毛野君田道命).
