History of
Konnoh Hachimangu Shrine

By Shigeyoshi Gorozaemon Muraoka, dated as the first month of the year 9 in the Meioh era, as well as in the year of kanoesaru (one of 60 sexagenary cycle year) (February, 1500 AD)


Inside Konnohmaru Mikage-do, located in the precinct of this shrine, there is a wooden statue of Konnohmaru carved by himself that he gave to his mother as a bequest when he went to war at the age of 17.
Descendants of the Shibuya clan still live throughout Japan. An elder statesman in the Meiji era, Marshal-Admiral Heihachiro Togo was a descendant of the clan.
The wooden statue of Konnohmaru is specially exhibited at the Konnohmaru Festival held on the last Saturday of March, when Mikage-do is open to the public.
