A Shinto shrine situated along Prefectural Route 141 in Kusatsu, Kusatsu City. Founded in 767, the shrine is dedicated to Takemikazuchi-no-mikoto. After the shogun general Sakanoue no Tamuramaro prayed here for protection from misfortune during his subjugation of the northeast and gifted a figure of the Great Perfection of Wisdom Sutra to the shrine, the shrine came to be seen as providing worshippers with protection from evil and traffic safety.

Visitors to Shiga prefecture are almost always hopping east across the prefectural border from Kyoto, and they are almost certainly Lake Biwa-bound. Covering an area of 670 square kilometers, Lake Biwa makes up the bulk of Shiga prefecture, with beautiful lakeside paths that offer myriad walking and cycling opportunities, connecting a string of museums, shrines, and picturesque views that finally lead you to Hikone Castle on the eastern side of the lake.
