Usajingu Shrine, Usa

(4.5/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • Room to swing. Desperately I walked from the parking lot. But mountain climbing but not walk the gravel approach while taking a lot of photos while you look around and feel 引ki締marimashita. Main is of course little vermilion, gay, and, I feel the grandeur. Monument of Miyamoto Musashi, such as automobile parking lot near the road to the souvenir shops there are of course many.

  • Leave your car in the parking lot, across the shinkyo bridge we headed to the main shrine. May take some time, quite a site. The main shrine in the Hachiman-zukuri, Gable of flat pieces of two buildings were connected before and it was. Hiwada roofing and the main restoration 3/2015, had become more brilliant.
