Akama Shrine, Shimonoseki

(3.8/5 based on 160+ 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. Our Shimonoseki trip generator makes visiting Akama Shrine and other Shimonoseki attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • As well as Shimonoseki is famous on a nationwide scale shrine. The colours of vermilion was impressive. Good access from Shimonoseki station and karato market across the road, and on the Jinja-Mae Bus stop, bus service is extensive because it is.
