26.Hiro shrine

Yasutomo Hiro who was born in a local clan of Settsu Province enshrined a god in Sagishima for first time in 861.


According to the record, he anchored his ship in this island on the way to the pirate subjugation. The reason was that he prayed to Amidasanzon and the spirits of his ancestors to prevent the spread of an epidemic in it.


Afterward the people who felt the respect towards him built a shrine and worshiped him as Hiro Myoujin.
