  • 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.
  • Not only to stop the bicycle stand is not a parking spot sign. Planet stopping is not allowed. There is resting with a roof, and vending machines in your environment. Really liked the atmosphere here in clear air.

  • Jingu-feel the greatness. In a relatively new shrine Meiji era, was built in a part of the policy. However, you are in the land of the Takeshi Emperor famous. With stand ready to go to the end of the year.

  • It is derived from the time-honored referred to this shrine in Nara Japan's first emperor jimmu Tenno shrine for about 130 years ago, built a shrine.  So can come near in the Kintetsu NARA or a little to the South but good transport links.  I come to this place, and pass through the gate and indescribably atmosphere.  Closes the mind, or rather solemn and so is the atmosphere.  Neighborhood and uncheck the time of cherry blossoms in April will come many worshippers at the new year, new year's day, but this time I will not immediately until the environment can enter. Feel like watching enters eyes large empty building is blessed with great weather on this day is just the same old people and scenery is just me? ~
