Kamayama-jinja Shrine deifies Hikoitsuse-no-mikoto, who was believed as the older brother to the first emperor of Japan, Jimmu in 600s BC. It is located in Wada, about 4 kilometers northeast from Kimiidera in Wakayama City. Behind the forest-ish main shrine, you will see an imperial mausoleum of Hikoitsuse-no-mikoto. It is believed that he breathed his last in Onominato after suffering from an injury received in Yamato subjugation. He is said to be buried in Onominato.
