It is said that Yamatotekerunomikoto held his first service at Sendagi about 1900 years ago. Year 2 of the Houei era of the Edo period, 5th shogun Tsunayoshi established Tsunatoyo, the son of his older brother Tsunashiga, as his adoptive heir. He offered his compound to the building of the Nezu Shrine. The following year (1706), the main building and 7 sections were completed. In the 6th year of the Showa era (1931) it was designated a national treasure (currently called an important cultural property).
