Hirota Shrine is a very old shrine. It was given mention in the Nihon-Shoki, one of Japan's oldest historical texts. During the Heian Period it was designated as one of the nation's top 22 shrines. The Heian court made annual offerings here. The shrine was once known as Nishinomiya Shrine, and it is from this that the city got its name.

Entrance is free.
