One of the temples that can be visited to understand the oni culture of "Kunisaki". It was called "Nagaiwaya" because the center of the precinct is in a horizontally-long cave formed as a high rocky peak (now Nagaiwaya is also used as a district's name). Currently, the auditorium, which was used for Shujooni-e ritual until the latter half of the Edo Period, is built in the interior of the cave together with the neighboring Misosogi Shrine.
