3.8/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web
Visit Akama Shrine, an elegant shrine with a sad dedication. It commemorates Antoku, a child emperor who drowned at a very early age during the culturally important nautical battle of Dan-No-Ura. Observe the colors and style of the building and gate, said to be inspired by the folkloric, sub-aquatic palace of the dragon god Ryujin. Located on the waterfront not far from the battle site, the shrine affords views of the bay.

  • Is a Shinto shrine dedicated to Emperor antoku was committed suicide in the Genpei War. That died the Emperor antoku was only eight years old, Suitengu also known as Palace of vivid colours and appearance is very beautiful. Watching the water, sparkling views of kanmon Strait with the Seto Inland Sea from the front and heart is washed. It is recommended to come by any shrine more than beautiful vistas, so go to the Shimonoseki.
