This temple was established in April 1625 (the 2nd year of the Kan’ei era), with its foundations being laid by Ogi Kanshichirou of Heiwa-mura in Yamato (now Nara Prefecture). During the Genna era, Kanshichirou visited this location with his two younger brothers, developed the land and named it Ogi Shinden. Due to a great tsunami the goddess Kishimojin appeared from the sea, and the figure of her spirit is enshrined in the temple.
