Mikurusu Shrine

This shrine was built near the location where Emperor
Tenmu is said to have buried a chestnut for making a prayer
before ascending the throne during the Asuka Period. In the
narrative, the chestnut developed into a chestnut grove, and
the harvested chestnuts were presented to the Imperial
Court. This is the origin of this shrine’s name. Currently, the
chestnut grove has been turned into a tea plantation.
