Usajingu Shrine, Usa
(4.4/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
See one of the most famous and sacred Shinto shrines at Usajingu Shrine, dedicated to warrior god Hachiman-jin, a deification of Emperor Ojin. The present complex dates from the 19th century, although the foundation originated in the 8th century. Broad walkways, temple buildings, ponds connected with small bridges, and stairs lead to the top of the hill and the main hall. The two portions of the red and white shrine, placed one in front of the other, characterize the structure's Hachiman-zukuri style. The deity stays in the front of the shrine during day, while the back serves as its sleeping chamber. Stop in the tourist shops on the lower level for souvenirs. Make Usajingu Shrine a centerpiece of your Usa vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Usa trip generator.

  • It is a head temple of the Hachiman shrine in Japan. Shinkyo bridge across from the shrine through the Torii, omote-Sando, I walked. It is wider than expected. Climb the slope is the main shrine on arrival. Villa had three. And Mairi is 2 bows 4 applause was bowed. In the main shrine under the family panning of etiquette is. Hope nokyo-Sho is two-fold.
