周?的地? Orihime Shrine


Ashikaga has the history of weaving for 1300 years. In 1704, when Toda Tadatoshi became a domain lord of Ashikaga, he found out that there was no shrine enshrined weaving, and asked Ise Jingu Shrine to establish the Orihime, the princess of weaving who weaved the cloth for Amaterasu Omikami, at Ashikaga.

In 1880, the previous shrine was burnt down, and in 1937 reconstructed at Orihime Mountain.
