This paper reports Naragi shrine which is deeply connected with the period of Northern and Southern Dynasties and the Meiji Restoration. The shrine keeps syncretism of Shinto and Buddhism. The shrine and Naragi Kannon-do hall were built in the same site. The shrine was founded in 1006. However, the fact that was reconstructed in 1868 was found out. The construction year of Naragi Kannon-do hall is unknown, but it is thought that it was built after 1755. Design of Naragi Kannon-do is more luxurious than design of Naragi shrine.
