Hailing from Ancient Korea, the Deity of Success is Worshipped Here. The Koma Family Residence, a National Important cultural Property, is a Highlight!
Koma Shrine houses the guardian deity of Koma no Kokishi Jakko, an official who came to Japan from Goguryeo, an ancient kingdom of Korea. Sarutahiko no Mikoto and Takenouchi no Sukune no Mikoto are the other gods enshrined here.
Called “the great god of success”, several politicians went on to become prime ministers after praying to Jakko. That’s why a lot of people have come here to pray for success in life and business prosperity.
On the other hand, many worshippers pray for successful pregnancy and safe childbirth, as well as the prosperity of future generations.
Adjacent to the Koma Shrine grounds is the former residence of the Koma family, who have served as Shinto priests.
Built in the 17th century, this historic family residence is designated as an Important Cultural Asset by the Japanese government.
The tutelary deity is Koma no Kokishi Jakko, who came to Japan from the ancient Korean kingdom of Goguryeo .
It is famous as a place to pray for success.
Next to the shrine grounds, the Koma Family Residence, an Important Cultural Property, remains.
