RIBA135737
NOTES: The original shrine was founded in the 3rd century, but the current buildings date back to the early nineteenth century. It has been rebuilt in the Sumiyoshi-zukuri style which was the characteristic architecture of the Shinto shrines which predate the arrival of Buddhism in Japan. They were constructed like ancient dwellings, of timber with pitched and gabled roofs, thatched with reed or cypress bark. The prayer halls are of a different style.
