Worshipped with fervor by the common people as a protective deity of food, clothing and shelter. The shrine bustled on the Hatsu-uma (The first day of the horse in February) with the kite market. There is a legend that on New Year's Eve, the foxes of the Kanto region gathered under a nearby Japanese hackberry tree, put on clothes and worshipped. The Japanese hackberry tree where the foxes supposedly gathered was called "Shozoku Enoki" (Costume Japanese hackberry tree).
