Kashima Jingu, Kashima

Surrounded by an ancient cedar forest, Kashima Jingu, is dedicated to a local patron deity of martial arts. In the 16th century, one of Japan's major sword masters frequently visited this site, eventually establishing a martial arts school named after this shrine . As you take a peaceful stroll through the complex, look for reflecting ponds and stone lanterns, just two examples of the temple's notable outdoor features.

  • I live in Tokyo, but I have been to Ise Grand Shrine many times, but I haven't been to Kashima Shrine yet, so I was surprised to find out the other day. There are 90 round trips a day from Tokyo Station Express Bus Terminal. What's this overcrowded diamond? The site is more compact than Ise Grand Shrine. You can go around in a small hour.

  • It is a site where you can feel the history, and the atmosphere is severe with large trees and humidity. Most tourists, but when you visit, you feel something to tighten your mind. I thought faith was also important.
