Shizutani shrine

The school founder Ikeda Mitsumasa is enshrined here.

This shrine was originally called as “Higashi-Mido( East Shrine )” or “Horetsu-Shi( Horetsu shrine )”.
Because Mitsumasa’s Okurina( Honorific title after his death ) was Horetsu-Ko( Duke Strong flavor ).

There is a gilt bronze seated statue of Mitsumasa enshrining in Honden( the main hall ) as Goshintai( worship symbol ).
The printed pattern of eaves-end tile is swallowtail butterfly, the family emblem of the Ikedas.
