Kenkun Jinja (Shrine)
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

The Kenkun Jinja(Shrine) was founded in 1869 by the Meiji Emperor to extol the exploits of legendary warrior and ruler, Nobunaga Oda. In addition to his military exploits, Nobunaga permitted the practice of Christianity and tried to develop local economies by improving badly kept roads and abolishing barriers between provinces. The Funaoka Matsuri(Festival) is held there each October 19, to commemorate the day Nobunaga entered Kyoto, aiming to end a century of strife in the area and, ultimately, all of Japan. It is thought that some of Nobunaga's ashes have been divided and enshrined at this and two other sites, the Amidaji Shrine and the Honnoji Shrine. (bio by: Warrick L. Barrett)
