Honden of Otoshimioya Jinja at Shizuoka Sengen Jinja in Shizuoka, Japan

A Shinto shrine typically consists of two primary buildings. The heiden is the offering or prayer hall positioned in front. Behind it is the honden. This sacred main hall is where the deity is enshrined. It is rarely open to the public and only entered by a Shinto priest. This is the honden of Otoshimioya Jinja. Inside is the go-shintai (sacred body) of the kami Otoshimioya, the god of business and economy. This nagare-zukuri style structure was rebuilt after a fire in 1804.
