Musashi Ichinomiya Hikawa Shrine, Omiya

4.5
Explore the sprawling complex of Musashi Ichinomiya Hikawa Shrine, featuring many religious structures, set in rich greenery, and lacquered with red paint. Supposedly established in 473 BCE, during the reign of Emperor Kōshō, this ancient site has since been repaired and reconstructed various times, due to lightning strikes and other disasters. Once you enter through the tall, vermillion gate, you'll observe a handful of secondary shrines before coming across a serene pond. After crossing the pond's arcing bridge, you find the imposing Romon Gate and the entrance to the main shrine grounds. Bring your camera, as the site offers many photo opportunities.

  • Founded in 2000 years. There is a history. Tokyo is destroyed by World War II and the Great Kanto Earthquake, but this one survives. Enshrines the life of Susa. It continues from the country of Yamato.

  • Even if you go around the shrines of the whole country, after all here is the most calm place from a young child to the place that went to The Tokimachi and new year's visit familiar today i visited from a different perspective from now finely, in detail ... It was fun. Everyone should have been worshipping with a lot of thoughts... I want to be like hikawa shrine with a big container! I've prayed.
