  • To pray for my son's success. Caught in the cute little train with peach and staff walking in the great shrine, the Straits became a good exercise. Tenman-gu shrine of Inari, academic, even things I wish had.

  • From Jr Okayama station kibi line service convenient. Can be kibitsu station is preferred in preparing Ichinomiya stopover on the way back, stop by in the kibituhiko shrine. That 10-minute walk through the pine trees and a small hill the kibitsu shrine is located on. The gate of the compound and climb the stairs and continue from there to the ground. I wonder if exacerbated by making this cold air.

  • Really just a normal shrine. The long covered hallway was fun, as was the hydrangea-lined stairs, but the best was really the ambience and cycling through the rice fields rather than the shrine itself...  more »

  • 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 liked the long corridor. The shrine of 鳴釜 are bubbling and simmering, burns a gas fire was impressive. That's exactly what "kibitsu cauldron" in tales of the world itself. It is a shrine even solemn "kibitsu concrete" lined roof honden and haiden of the two. A little souvenir of the shrine before Let's rice go.
