On the 1st of January, the Ikuta Shrine New Year's Day Festival is the most popular place in Kobe. The first day is a traditional new year-end visit to Japan. People usually visit the major shrines on the night of December 31. The Ikuta Shrines Chadian Festival was held by the shrine of the shrine to beat the Taiko in the early morning of the New Years Eve, praying for the blessing of the gods.
When we went, the shrine was still in the preparation stage. In the front of the main hall, the "new year painting" of the year of the zodiac has been placed. Booths for the sale of goods during the New Years Day festival are also in place. There is also a courtyard and an Inari Shrine at the back of the main hall of Ikuta Shrine.
Ikuta Shrine is also the name of Kobe's cherry blossoms. You can buy the sakura of the cherry blossoms.
The Kobe Ikuta Shrine is said to have a history of a thousand years, enshrining the goddess of the sun, and seeking a special marriage. Later, a Shenmu in the courtyard germinated again after the fire, so it is also very healthy to seek health here.
It will take about ten minutes to walk from JR Sannomiya Station, and go to the Alien Hall. The shrine itself is not big, there is a small bird house behind, suitable for taking pictures h
