Niukanshofu-jinja is located at Kudoyama town in Wakayama Prefecture.
Originally this shrine was dedicated to Niu Myojin and Koya Myojin, the guardian deities of the privileged estate of Kongobuji called "Kanshofusho".
The shrine was called "Jintsuji-shichishamyojin" which literally means Jintsuji temple and seven deities shrine.
Until the Shintoism and Buddhism Separation Decree was issued in the 19th century, there used to be the Buddhist temple buildings in its compound and this shrine had received worship in tandem with the adjacent Jison-in.
This is a property demonstrating the facts related to the Shinto-Buddhist fusion unique to Japan.
The Honden buildings were recontructed during the 16th century.
It takes 25minutes walk from Kudoyama station of the Nankai Koya Line.(Y.N)
