Hikawa Shrine, Saitama
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Explore the sprawling complex of Hikawa Shrine, featuring many religious structures, set in rich greenery, and lacquered with red paint. Supposedly established in 473 BCE, during the reign of Emperor Kōshō, this ancient site has since been repaired and reconstructed various times, due to lightning strikes and other disasters. Once you enter through the tall, vermillion gate, you'll observe a handful of secondary shrines before coming across a serene pond. After crossing the pond's arcing bridge, you find the imposing Romon Gate and the entrance to the main shrine grounds. Bring your camera, as the site offers many photo opportunities. Hikawa Shrine is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Saitama Edition.
