Honmoku Jinja was established in 1192. The original Shrine, then known as Honmoku Juni Ten Ja was located at the foot of Honmoku-Juniten, which was then on the shore of Tokyo Bay. Honmoku Jinja enshrined the gods who were the guardians of fishermen and the local people. Thus, it was of great importance to all fishermen, and the shrine even received monetary support from the Kamakura Shogunate. Sadly, the original shrine, seven centuries old, was destroyed during the air raids of World War II. Honmoku Jinja was rebuilt in 1954 at a different site. Finally, in 1993 it was moved to its current location.
