The 2,600-year old giant camphor is enshrined as a sacred tree and various shrine buildings are designated important national cultural properties. As the deity of the sea, mountains and warriors, the shrine has been visited by many military commanders, and the precious swords and armour they dedicated at the shrine are on display in the museum.
