Taga Jinjas at Tagajo Ruins Site

Tagajo is a seat of government from olden days. There are remains of buildings, and even today there are two shrines called Taga Jinja. I will show you the remains and the shrines. I believe that the second shrine is the older, for it honors Izanagi and Izanami.

We will post a third Taga Jinja, and this shrine in another part of Tagajo City is may be the most important of the many Taga Jinja. It was the origin of the Taga Jinja (now Taga Taisha) in Shiga Ken (our fourth Tagajo Jinja).
