Awesome shrine with tori gates and path stretching from the sea towards the shrine. Area within the shrine is huge and shrine is dedicated to Emperor Ojin and Empress Jingu. A short walk from Hakozakigu Station and was quite empty when we got there arouns 2.30pm.

Hakozaki Shrine, a Shinto shrine, was created in 923 and was rebuilt or renovated a few times due to fire, war damage, etc. Based on Shinto shrine ranking and classification system in Japan, from 1871 to 1946, it is classified as imperial shrine (kampeisha or kanpeisha) category [vs. national shrine] of the so-called government or official shrine. The Shrine had been closely related to Emperor Daigo in its early history and, later, Emperor Ōjin, Empress Jingū and Tamayori-bime. While the Shrine has its important historical role, the Shrine itself is unique for its main worship hall, tower gate, votive lantern, main torii gateway [red gate removed in 2018 due to high maintenance cost] which are all designated by Japanese government as important national cultural treasures. The Shrine has large, open space for its complex and courtyard and is very suitable, comfortable and pleasant for touring and visits, especially, the Shrine, generally, is NOT crowded. The Shrine is well maintained and is neat with smooth ground for walking or even jogging and other forms of exercises, such as biking, for the community residents. The shrine is free of charge for entrance admission and has very clean toilets for the worshippers and visitors inside the Shrine territory.

Really neat temple! It has a few unique things, like a station to wash money for good luck.

One of the shrines designated as an important cultural asset. The shrine was founded in 923. It is a historic shrine which has maintained its dignity and purity for over 1000 years. The grounds are beautifully cleaned and the atmosphere is invigorating. Very near from a subway station.

At September, we went to the “放生会”! The atmosphere was great, good food good staff and good people (over ten thousands people eating and walking on street but no rubbish on floor, you can imagine how they were behaved well). However, no rubbish and no washroom, it was not very convenient for people to go for eating street food and drinking. Although there were 200 shops but most of the food and drinks were repeating. Anyway it was a really great experience during the mid autumn.
