Ikuta Shrine, Kobe

(3.8/5 based on 440+ 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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Ikuta Shrine by using our Kobe family vacation planner.

  • Beautiful shrine in central Kobe. A short walk from JR/Hanshin/Hankyu Sannomiya stations, this is a must see stop for visitors. A small shrine compared to others, but very important and famous in Kobe. Destroyed in the 1995 Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, it has been restored to original splendor.
  • Beautiful shrine in the heart of the city. We read in a previous review that there's a shortcut to the Kobe mosque through this shrine so we tried it, and yes it was. We also love the cleanliness and decent exterior of the shrine!
  • Clean and beautiful shrine...this can be shortcut to the Masjid Kobe.
  • It looks pretty nice but they turn the place into a car park at nights.
  • One of the most beautiful Shinto shrines in Kobe.
