Shirahige Jinja in Higashi Komatsugawa is a guardian deity of this town. It has no specific information when and who built the shrine, but it has been stood in this woods since Edo period as it was appeared on Shinpen Musashi Fudokiko (a geographic guidebook describing Musashi province published in Edo period). There are swings along the approach road and sometimes children play them with their big smiles in this quiet woods. In summer, people could enjoy their leisure time under gingko and zelkova trees standing the woods. Behind the main hall, there stands Ukisu Sengen Jinja that had been moved. Visitors could enjoy feeling that time is passing and they could forget about time when they sit on the stone steps in front of Shirahige and Ukisu Sengen Jinja. Why don't you visit it?

The Historic Site Ukisu Sengen Jinja

Ukisu Sengen Jinja had been a guardian deity of a piece of the former Higashi Komatsugawa Village's land (now it is in Nakagawa Canal), and it is standing in the site of Shirahige Jinja in Higashi Komatsugawa. There is no information when it was built, but it is said to be one of the oldest shrines in Edogawaku. In 1648, Iemitsu Tokugwa, the Third Shogun of Edo Bakufu gave a piece of land to manage it. The shrine dedicates Ameno Hiwashihiko no Mikoto.
The story telling beginning of this shrine exists and it tells 'it had been a small island in the river. When one fisherman was waiting for that the tide would be turning, he found a card that Konohana Sakuyahime no Mikoto was written on it was flown on the river. Then he put it in sands on the small island and the island become larger and larger, finally villagers built Sengen Jinja Shrine on it.'
Ukima Sengen Jinja was described on Narita Sankeiki (a guidebook describing the way to Narita from Edo in Edo period), and it said the shrine has two mirrors as its holy treasures.
