Ujigami shrine

  • 世界遺産

An oldest shrine construction that is existing

The shrine is located at eastside of Uji river and submontane of Mt. Asahi.
The origin is not clear, for example we do not know when is the foundation..  Ujinorakiirakko was an imperial prince of the Emperor Oujin and loved by the Emperor (his father), He became a crown prince, but he and his brother, who became the Emperor Nintoku later, were transferred the imperial throne to each other. He committed suicide and his brother got the imperial throne. ( Another. proposition is existed. They say it was a conflict.)

Before the Meiji Restoration, Uji shrine and Ujigami shrine were called “Ujirikyu-Myojin” and “Hachimansha”. Uji shrine near Ujigami shrine consists of “Shimoyashiro Wakamiya”, in other hand, Ujigami shrine consists of “Kamiyashiro Motomiya”.

In 16th year of the Heisei (2004) February, Narabunka research laboratory and Uji city and etc researched it. As a result of measuring age of annual rings, Honden Hall was proved to be the oldest shrine construction, Byodo-in, which was founded on 1052 and we could understand the shrine had a strong relationship with Byodo-in temple.
