▼About Yasaka-jinja Shrine.
our company referred to itself as Kanjin-in Temple or Gion-sha Shrine until it was renamed as Yasaka-jinja Shrine by Jingatsu (1868) dated May 30. There are various theories about the establishment of the shrine, but it is said to have started when a mission from Goryeo called Koreyuki (Iriki) enshrined Susanoo-no-mikoto who sat on Mt. Gozu in Silla at Yasaka-go, Otagi County, Yamashiro Province in the 2nd year of the reign of Emperor Saimei (656).
