Usajingu Shrine, Usa

4.5
#1 of 78 in Historic Sites in Oita Prefecture
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.

    Son and Kansai landed with the car by ferry, we worship. Scales are different, but placed second to Ise Jingu Shrine, is a head temple of the shrine. Was in the midst of the o-Bon shake a little drizzle, but worshippers are smooth, not many visits! Surrounded by many trees, sunlight negative ions, very pure heart. A little souvenir shop in front of the deserted and many goods, no.

    USA shrine said at the shrine of Hachiman, and planning a family trip to yufuin and Beppu Onsen, and tourist attractions near check that first. I went to the hot springs Beppu Oita airport car rental around the USA shrine, but from the airport to the shrine car handy was in. We visited few visitors on weekdays during hot days, Torii Hall until shade but from stone the monument to go away too tight and it treads in the family the sweat was. As soon as I thought best avoided visits to summer in. Ring was, however, in Shinto purification approach provided the thatch, so based on involves a string of six family members who boasted that become memories. We recommend that Kazuyuki Palace, 2, Palace, Palace, three of enshrining a Zhu, is visited once. Stone is fine, but people with disabilities, there has been a concern to worshippers elderly from the Hall until the Namdaemun monorail like because of the shrine.

    Without knowing the etiquette of Ise Jingu Shrine revered member, "再拝 2 applause one worship" was. Look at a later time and not know or have heard of USA shrine and headquarters of the hachimangu shrine, although a Hachiman shrine has only vaguely understood, try. Kazuyuki Palace, Palace, 2, 3, goten and Palace and the big central than Hachiman Okami 2, three women landowners God's (is and Himiko) in knowing that inspires the conveyance of the land of Izumo-Taisha Shrine as well as location.
