Uetsukihachiman Shrine

Tourist attractions

The enshrined deity is Honda Wakenomikoto. It is believed that it had some kind of relationship with Uetsuki-ji Temple in the Nara period.
Uetsuki-ji Temple is the dojo where Fuhito Fujiwara invited Jotatsu Hoshi and held Yuima-kai in the second year of Wado (709).
The bronze statue of the Yakushi Sanzon, which was excavated when Koriyama Castle was built, was moved to Yakushi-ji Saiin-do (the present auditorium).
