Known as Gion Shrine in Hama district, it is very crowded with “Hama Gion Festival” to be held every summer. The Mikoshi (portable shrine) departs from Matsuoka Shrine, walks around Hama-machi and goes back and forth between Wakamiya Shrine. It is speculated that it was founded in the Heian period between 1004 and 1012.
