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.

Usajingu Shrine Reviews
社殿は伊勢神宮よりも小さいのですが、全体的に伊勢神宮を参拝しているような気がしました。時間があまりなかったので、いろいろなところを見ることができませんでしたが、またゆっくりと訪れたいと思わせる神社でした。 more »The shrine hall is smaller than Ise Grand Shrine, but overall I felt like I was visiting Ise Grand Shrine. I didn't have much time, so I couldn't see many places, but it was a shrine that made me want to visit again slowly.
レンタカーのナビのせいで参道じゃなく球場側に案内されてしまいました。旅行の最終日で体調が悪く(インフルでした)フラフラでしたので広い境内を歩くのが大変でしたが上宮と下宮の両方お参りしました。ご利益があったのか無事に家まで帰ることができました。 more »Because of the navigation of the rental car, I was guided to the stadium side rather than the approach. On the last day of my trip, I was sick (it was flu) and it was hard to walk around the large precincts, but I visited both Kamimiya and Shimomiya. I was able to return home safely because of your benefit.
