Usajingu Shrine, Usa

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.

  • There are three shrines from one to three palaces: Daishin Yahata, Daijin Hito, and Empress Kamigo. There was also a place for those who could not go to Ogen Shrine. Prepare a lot of donations in advance. It is said that there is a profit in the luck of winning. The form to visit by entrusting the red seal book to the spring palace on the way. You can also enjoy a meal and a taste of Usadadongo because there is a very wide visit to the treasure museum and nakami-yo. If you have enough time, you can also visit The Goraku-ji Temple next to the tourist office, such as The Pure Land Mandala, which emperor Meiji was murdered, and Amida Buddha of The Former Usamiyamoto Son, Andy Grand Buddha, and Dairakuji Temple. There was also a rental bicycle at the tourist office. From 4 p.m. on August 1, there will be the Emperor's Throne Ceremony.

  •  Reiwa visited on May 1, the new year. It is not only the beginning of the Reiwa, but also 10 days because it is in the midst of a large-scale holiday. The line of the red seal is long, too. First of all, it queued up in the line to apply, and it queued up in the completed procession. It's amazing because the two lines of convenience are stretching to the near torii. I usually come to the main shrine and go back, but i went around the shrine because of the great pain. First of all, we visited The Goraku-ji Temple and Dairaku-ji Temple, which we had learned with Jingu. From Omotesando to the Shrine, we returned to the Treasure Museum, Tonggu Shrine, Harumiya Shrine, Wakamiya Shrine, Kamimiya, Shimomiya, Yayoi-ji Ruins, Kurebashi and the Yorimo River. If you look at the time lined up in the red mark, it's about two hours. It is a shrine with a really deep interior when turning carefully.
