Item details

Hawaii Kotohira Jinsha, endearingly known as Konpira-san, was established in Hawaii to perpetuate Shinto traditions.
In 1920, a Gobunrei (spirit of the deity of the main shrine) from Kotohira-gu in Kagawa-ken, Japan, was brought to Hawaii by Rev. Hitoshi Hirota, Yasubei Motoyasu, Bunkichi Tanaka, Kyujiro Taguchi and Gennosuke Okamoto.
A residence at 1256-A North King Street in Kapalama was converted into a shrine where Rev. Hirota performed the traditional rites and rituals embraced by the first-generation Isseis. Kotohira-gu, long known as the guardian deity of fishing and commerce, quickly grew in popularity and membership.
