[Beginning of history]

It is not clear about the restoration of Tosa Shrine, but it is thought that the natural stone called the gravel stone in the northeast part of the precincts was enshrined as a enshrined shrine, and it is said to date back to ancient times.

During the Heian period, when the system of Enki was declared, Emperor Daigo's reign was lined up by Shikiuchi Taisha shrine and called Tosaza Shrine, and there were often visits of the imperial family's reverence envoy, and in 940, the Shinto floor was advanced to the throne.

At the beginning of the Kamakura period, it entered the Shinto-Buddhist custom era and was designated as tosa kunisangyou ichinomiya. The Ichinomiya Shrine was formed at our company, Jinguji Temple, and Zenrakuji Temple, and was called Tosa Takagamo Daimeijin.
In the Muromachi period, in 1570, The Emperor Masachika's former head of turtles (1570), the former parents of Nagasogabe revived the main shrine, the mint hall, and the worship hall, and the Emperor Godai Keichoroku (1 In 1601), he enjoyed Yamauchi Ichitoyo-soi and licensed the former company territory, and in the second generation Tadayoshi, he added torii, a tower gate, and a drum tower, and made it the best prayer center in Tosa.
In the first year of the Meiji era, the year-ended Shinto-Buddhist custom era, which lasted for many years, was renamed Tosa Shrine in 1868, and the name was lined up in the National Mint Nakasha.
After the war, the government mint system was abolished in 1946, and it is now considered to be the annex shrine of the shrine's main office.

I will introduce the preliminary knowledge that you will be interested in this shrine from a otaku's point of view.

"Ajisuki takahikone no kami" of the festival god and
About "hitokoto nushi no kami"

On August 13, 686, 686, there is a strong reverence from the Imperial Court, such as praying for the healing of Emperor Tenmu's illness.

"Tosa Kuni Fudoki"
"The name of god is not "one word lord's son", and the father is not understood well, but in a certain legend, it is said that it is "Ajislow Takahikon son" the son of the great power lord.'

The god of the festival is "a word of master's son" and "Ajislow Takahikon-son"

These two pillars of the deity are gods who have been enshrined as the clan gods of Yamato Katsuragi by Mr. Kamo since ancient years.
It is said that it was enshrined here because mr. Kamo of Yamato or his family was entrusted to the national construction of Tosa.

tsubute ishi

Ogami, who arrived at "Kamonochi" in Tosa, stayed in the land of present-day Tosa Shrine and was enshrined as a "gravel isi"

The Sore of the Gravel Stone
When he moved to Tosa of Tosa Ogami in the old story, he sent the ship to Takaoka-gun Ura ahead, built a salary shrine, and worshiped it as the great god of Kamo.
At one time, the god body manifestation is made to grant to the shinto thought, and it is made to throw it by taking the stone, and it throws it, and the shrine is stopped in the place where the stone of the salary is stopped, and, i.e., the stone is decided, and it is called an ancient person with an important stone which decided this site so-called by the stone.
It is the reason why the line of the god happiness in the past was done like such a leap clerk between Uranouchi and this shrine.
This ground becomes the formation of the serpentinite, and this crushed stone is a silica stone, and the nature is completely different, and this stone is called the rolling stone in the academia, and it is considered a special material academically.
