The history of the Utsunomiya Futaarayama Shrine dates back 1,600 years when the shrine was dedicated to the founder of Utsunomiya, Toyoki-Irihiko-no-Mikoto. Most of the festivals now held in the city are related to this historic shrine. Many citizens come to the shrine on special occasions such as New Year and Shichi-Go-San (the “7-5-3” celebration of children’s growth). The illuminated gate and approach to the shrine are an incredible evening sight. The shrine is also home to some nationally important works of art.
