Kawajiri Hachimangu Shrine is said to have been built on May 5, 1525, with Emperor Ojin as the enshrined deity. On his way to Oshu, he fell ill and died, so his companions mourned him and buried him in this land. It is said that the present-day Kawajiri Hachimangu Shrine was built to enshrine the branch spirit of Iwashimizu Hachimangu Shrine that the chief had protected, and that the group later prospered the Oshu Kiyohara family.
In 1929, a stone chamber was excavated from the north side of the precincts, and two swords, 36 arrowheads, earthenware, etc. were excavated. According to the "Shinpan Sagami no Kuni Fudoki Manuscript", along the approach to the shrine from the first torii, there was a huge pine tree, so it was also called "Namiki Hachiman". In addition, it is said that Yudate Kagura and dedicatory sumo wrestling were held at the annual festival (former July 28th), and it was crowded.
