Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine

Sumiyoshi Taisha is among the oldest of Shintō shrines in Japan. It is mentioned in the Kojiki as one of the three shrines founded by Empress Jingū on her return from Korea. Its four main buildings (honden) house the prinicipal kami: Sokotsutsu-no-O-no-Mikoto, Nakatsutsu-no-O-no-Mikoto, Uwatsutsu-no-O-no-Mikoto and Okinagatarashi-Hime-no-Mikoto. The first three are the "trinity" of kami known collectively as Sumiyoshi-no-Ōkami, while the final is the enshrined name of Empress Jingū.

The honden buildings are known for their unique architectural style, which were designed before the influence of Buddhism from mainland Asia. As such, they are considered one of the few "purely Japanese" styles of architecture.
