About the Shukubo and its Origin
According to the legend, it is the first Kanto Sacred Site founded by Emperor Sujin about BC 90.
During the time when Yamatotakeru no Mikoto expedited to east, the evil spirit inside the deep forest released a mystic of fog to cause Yamatotakeru no Mikoto to lose the way. This led him to transform into a white wolf and after that he became and remained the god of Ookuchi Magami and he is admired based on this legend for eliminating evil spirits.
From this day onward, because of this miracle, “Oinusama” has become the god for exorcism and the elimination of fire.
The Mikata Shrine is dedicate to the armor and it is believed that it has been named as “Musashi” with the national name of “Musashi Mitake Shrine”.
