Although the shrine building was washing away by the tsunami of the Great East Japan Earthquake, it was rebuilt in 2014 thanks to the monetary support from Tokyo Suitengu.

Mikoshi, which also was washed away together with the building, was found in Otomo town. They’ve fixed it and been using it for the event since 2013.
