  • The deity enshrined here is Kibitsu-hiko, who subjugated Ura, the Demon in Kibi region. It has been told that this legend of Kibitsu-hiko became the well known story of Momotaro, translated as Peach Boy.
  • Kibitsu Jinja is one of the oldest shrines in western Japan. The main building is a massive traditional thatched roof. Well worth half an hour of your time.
  • I think that the shrine in Okayama Prefecture as well. A model of the peach and great kibitsuhiko only. Parking is plenty. Is unparalleled in other shrines with beautiful shrine honden and haiden in two lines, this long corridor. When I went to the first time using the peach line bizen-Ichinomiya station offers bicycle rental, again two Ichinomiya.

  • 吉備津神社祭拜吉備津彥命,這裡擁有國寶比翼入母屋翼的本堂,全日本唯一,氣勢驚人。 吉備津彥命據傳即是日本神話《桃太郎》的原型,神社的鳴釜神事是一種古老的吉凶占卜儀式,聽煮沸的大釜之鳴來論斷吉凶。 整座神社古樸自然,加上由車站前往的路上,鄉村景緻使人心曠神怡,確是神境之地。
