The shrine Kenkun Jinja was founded in 1869 by the Meiji Emperor to extol the exploits of legendary warrior and ruler, Nobunaga Oda. In addition to his military exploits, Nobunaga permitted the practice of Christianity and tried to develop local economies by improving badly kept roads and abolishing barriers between provinces.
