  • Kasuga Taisha Shrine ancestors of Fujiwara clan and 大中臣 who is the head of the shrine of the Kasuga deity is enshrined. Off of today's Japanese and Fujiwara Fujiwara is a matter of course, at least visited the Kasuga shrine come to NARA as a deus ex machina for most of the Japanese people, was inseparable from the ancestors would say the Mairi.
