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.

  • Nationwide, about 40000 is of having a Hachiman shrine. Parking is located next to Hachiman, walking from there head. Omotesando shopping street a little in front, so souvenirs are also available. Depends on the quiet, stately air, goes back through the gate, lined with trees from ancient times. There are also art galleries, visits to other, depicting the origin of USA Yahata and USA Hachiman Oracle case. Nokyo-sho looking next to the main building of the first temple at to deliver is. Should I get a number, so will redeemed after the shrine.

  • Total clearing of Hachiman-gu shrine said there are about 40000 companies in Japan, Hachiman shrine is a shrine. Sonoyatoishu Kyoto's iwashimizu's only original co enshrined here. It meant in Kyushu's leading power spot here seems to be very famous, but first of all what is a power spot? I think it is not granted without permission from power is embodied in the individual, went to the spot. Like worshiping here, says that his Lottery win, and he wants one can't win.... So do with similar power spot in Kyoto around there was no ask. It was as the shrine boasts a purely peaceful here and the history of the great shrine visit to a shrine. Couple stones or giant who was who's often spectacular or sacred... various shrines.
