  • The solemnity and grandeur, Holiness is not felt at all, why? Though it thinks the reason was easy. It is just childish Meiji government as a national shrine built without permission. Spoiled since ancient times from doing and destroying something maintained our cultural assets and keep the Japanese temples and shrines, monuments, castles, built at the end of this (of the Kyoto Heian Jingu Shrine as well) from "Let's honor! "" Now, pray do! "I feel worth dead than what is said. Because according to the description of Japan Chronicles say ancient Emperor jinmu Kashihara Shrine built by the building, build good heart without it now to get the support of much of the populace is questionable. It is so far only national shrines Park.

  • A national shrine, as opposed to a local shrine, worshipping the Emperor -- Aesthetically symbolic. Overstaffed when most of the time not much happens here. Other than during special national events, rather quiet, dry, detached, uninteresting. Did not have a welcoming spirit. There are much nicer local shrines and temples elsewhere,
  • Visited this shrine in April 2016 when they had the Jinmu Festival - a superb evening production of laser-light performances on the roof of the main shrine! There's a tented food stall that sells udon noodles, etc. while you sit and wait for the evening show to start. Nestled in a vast, tranquil park and only a 10-min walk from the JR station.
  • One of the most famous shrines in the country. Grand, beautiful, historic; what else could you ask for. If you are in the area, you must go.
  • Beginning from Miyazaki, where the emperor began.
