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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
