This building is located behind the Main Sanctuary.
It was constructed in 1972 to commemorate the shrine’s 100th anniversary, at which time private funds were received from the Emperor Showa.
When divinities are enshrined together at Yasukuni Jinja, their names, etc. are written in the register.
It contains about two thousand volumes, all carefully housed in this repository.
