Iga Hachimangu Shrine is where Tokugawa Ieyasu, the last of the three unifiers of the Sengoku period, always prayed for victory in battle. It is said that Matsudaira Chikatada, fourth lord of the Matsudaira family and ancestor to the Tokugawa family, began moving the shrine from Iga in Mie Prefecture in the year 1470 in order to pray for good fortune in battle and future prosperity.

Annually on the day before the beginning of spring according to the Japanese lunar calendar, Iga Hachimangu Shrine holds a Setsubun bean throwing festival, where beans are tossed in hopes of driving away bad luck.
Every year from late June to the end of July, lotus flowers bloom on the surface of the shrine's pond.
In addition, the buildings within the shrine grounds are almost all Important Cultural Properties.
