The site of Sutoku's grave is settled; this emperor is traditionally venerated at a memorial Shinto shrine in Kagawa. He was enshrined in Shiramine shrine and Kotohira-gū in Kagawa Prefecture; the former is associated with the god of football, worshipped by Kuge clan Asukai in times of yore, while the latter enshrined Ō-mono-nushi-no-mikoto, a god known to have restored harmony in Yamato in exchange for worship and nepotism. The Imperial Household Agency designates this location as Sutoku's mausoleum, it is formally named Shiramine no misasagi. Kugyō is a collective term for the few most powerful men attached to the court of the Emperor of Japan in pre-Meiji eras.
