Inspirock Rating:
3.8/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web
Dedicated to the Shinto goddess Wakahirume, Ikuta Shrine stands as one of the oldest structures of its kind in the country. Thought to have its origins in the 3rd century, the shrine has survived the destruction of Japan's medieval-era civil wars and World War II. The classic architecture of swooped roofs, wooden pillars, and stone statues is accented by a red-and-gold color scheme. Enjoy some time outdoors by wandering the grounds and discovering the duck pond and pathways around the shrine.
