Shizuoka: Ogushi Shrine

Ogushi Jinja (小梳神社) is a Shinto shrine in Shizuoka city. It is one of the oldest shrines in Shizuoka with a history of more than 400 years. Before moving to the current location, it was located in Sunpu Castle and worshiped as the guardian of it. The shrine is related to Tokugawa Ieyasu. It is said that Takechiyo (Ieyasu’s childhood name) was praying there during his hostage by the Imagawa clan.

Ogushi Jinja is a 5-minute from JR Shizuoka Station.
