Ichinomiya (一宮, also 一の宮 or 一之宮, first shrine) is a Japanese term for the chief Shinto shrines in each of the pre-modern provinces.[1]

The ichinomiya are the shrines with the highest shrine rank in an area.[2] Shrines of the lower rank are called ninomiya (二宮, second), sannomiya (三宮, third), shinomiya (四宮, fourth), and so forth.

History

When prefectures were established in the Meiji period, the old system of provincial ichinomiya was not changed. Each new prefecture had one or more ichinomiya.[3]
