Also called karimiya. Literally, a "temporary palace." Originally built as a temporary rest stop for an emperor, empress or crown prince during an outing, the term was later also applied to the temporary structures built to enshrine the spirit of a kami during a sacred procession (miyuki). As evidenced by the example at the shrine Iwashimizu Hachimangū, the term tongū is sometimes used today in the same sense as a temporary shrine or otabisho.
