Katori Shrine, Katori

4.5
Enjoy the elegant vermillion, golden, and black color scheme of Katori Shrine, the most prominent of several hundred Shinto Katori shrines in an imposing early 1700s building set in a large forest. Dedicated to a warrior god, the shrine enjoyed great popularity among the samurai. It also gives its name to one of the three major sword-fighting styles in Japan, and was revered by the Imperial Court as a guardian shrine of the nation. Many impressively old, large trees around the shrine remain preserved due to a taboo. Colorful seasonal processions take place at the shrine, while plenty of good restaurants around the temple offer "unagi," a freshwater eel specialty. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Katori holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Katori Shrine and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Beautiful well maintained shrine with large trees and beautiful ponds, well worth the time to go see if your in the area.
  • It's a peaceful and beautiful temple!
  • Approach can be as invigorating as well as visit Lantern. Went to foliage was still leaves first. I would, however, had a lot of maple, so when the season is really impressive. Kashima Jingu Shrine with the same keys, but next to the House in the blessing...? There are many attractions such as the honden, scent, and Mito light cherry blossom. There have been given wedding day, it was a fantastic atmosphere. Tea and coffee shop at the entrance, I also, sweet delicious dumplings, who is.

  • Cute deer approach refreshing main building is very beautiful, in a shrine deep cherry Baba (Deer Park). Volunteers are to take care of the deer's and there were food can help you do things and can be enjoyed. The famous Kasuga shrine (NARA) deer and said with polo shirt with grandchildren and Katori-Jingu Shrine Kashima Jingu Shrine, is also historically interesting. It is also love in the taste of the Ramen shop is friendly on the way to the deer park feel. I would also come up front and leaves much better is if you have the time while watching the main left scent around watching the best.

  • From three companies I visited at the end of the tour. Nokyo-sho at three locations attract and charm but I heard you can get anything passed. Ask the maiden ' is gone? "And was told in a high-handed manner, last visited the Katori shrine charm, not the bookmark will get. And there are things you can get by the root I visited in the order 息栖, Katori-Kashima is knowing, I was shocked. Lots there to review at a later time and I got the amulet at Katori shrine, apparently around August of this year? The bookmark is changed. It's said that it became a bookmark is a heavy handed wrong. Miko neat sees the temple at the previous page, if a third company is a bookmark. If I had a self-assessment. I'm not familiar that shiori's don't get any moyamoya. Also awarded, Miko's excited talk, has turned the image of a solemn shrine. Unsatisfied, return informed the dumpling shop in Omotesando.
