As the name suggests, this shrine shares a strong historical connection with Tottori prefecture. It was built by samurai families relocated from Tottori in the Meiji period, and enshrines the deity "Okuninushi Daijin" of the Izumo Taisha Shrine. In 1984, a museum, the Tottori Hyakunenkan, was added to the shrine precincts. Its beautiful exterior is styled after Tottori Castle, and the displays, which include tools and materials brought by the original settlers, are well worth the visit.
