The traffic to the shrine is easy to reach. After the train station comes out, go straight, that is, the train schedule is not very dense, remember to watch the time first. After exiting the train station, there is a boulevard that is very flavorful. You first arrive at the Japanese garden in front of the shrine, and then you arrive at Kibitsu Shrine, which is very beautiful and full of forest atmosphere. I was lucky to get on the lovely Momotaro train and arrived at Momotaro Shrine.
Kibitsu Shrine is also known as Momotaro Shrine. Those who are interested can search for stories and legends. The shrine’s architecture is very famous and is a national treasure of Japan. Those who like architecture can do their homework to visit, but I visit it unpreparedly and I am surprised by the architecture.
The scope of the shrine is very large. In addition to the main body of the shrine, there are back hills and courtyards, as well as flower gardens, and the whole is beautiful. I have admired the front courtyard for a long time. If you have enough time, you can leave one day for Kibitsu Shrine, a quiet and peaceful place.
Kibitsu Shrine and Kibitsuhiko Shrine in Okayama are two shrines, although they are only one word apart, and they are very close together, you can walk around together. Kibitsu Shrine is relatively large, and there is a 400-meter corridor, so let’s stroll around for half an hour. All shrines in Japan are free and you can visit them at will. There was a place where the seal was left. There were quite a lot of people during the Chinese New Year. Most of them were Japanese. I don't know if it was a festival in Japan. Many people lined up to leave the seal and write prayers. The seal left is not bad, written by an old gentleman, not hurriedly, vigorously and powerfully. Kibitsu Shrine enshrines Momotaro, and Okayama City is his image. There is also a Momotaro Street next to Okayama Station.
Kibizu Shrine enshrines the very famous Momotaro in Japan. There are many legends surrounding him. The entire shrine is the first Ichinomiya of the entire ancient Kibi country. The social status is very high. Later, Kibi country was divided into three. Za Shrine continued to be the Ichimiya of Bizen Kingdom, and was enshrined separately from Kibizuhiko Shrine, the Ichinomiya of Bizen. In fact, the distance between the two shrines is very close, and it is easy to make mistakes. Compared with other shrines, this Kibitsu Shrine is bigger and more famous. It is also known for its hundreds of meters of wooden promenades. It has no gorgeous colors. To be honest, it is still very beautiful, especially It's when there is no one to come and feel a kind of tranquility. Except for the long corridor, the main hall and the worship hall are smaller, but as a rare official currency center in China, its status is still very unusual, and its popularity is naturally very high. You can meet many people here to pray Some people come with children, and some come with a family. If you have time, I strongly recommend to come and take a stroll. Although it is not too far from Okayama city, the traffic is inconvenient and you must be prepared.
The most famous wooden promenade of Kibitsu Shrine should be more than 200 meters long! Go to the right in front of the main hall, and the promenade will catch your eyes. Since the main hall is located at the highest point of the hillside, the long corridor runs all the way down. The beauty of the present, of course, it is more straightforward to look at the photos!
Kibitsu Shrine is not a very popular tourist attraction. When JT went there that day, only a few Japanese people paid homage or visited it. Walking quietly on the long corridor of ancient wooden structure, coupled with Japan's cold weather in May, is really refreshing!
The structure of the promenade reminds me of the Senbon Torii at Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine in Kyoto.
There is no road at the end of the corridor, so if you want to return to the main hall, you have to turn back the same way. There is a place for hanging painted horses and a small courtyard next to the main hall, so you might as well stroll around when you have time.
This shrine is very special because Momotaro is enshrined in it. Although the shrine is small, it is worth seeing. And the traffic is more convenient
