Kashihara Jingu Shrine3.9
This shrine was erected in 1889 to enshrine Japan's first emperor Jinmu, who is believed to have acceded to the throne here. The shrine is entered from a wide approach through two majestic gates, and the central precincts are very huge, offering a pleasant stroll. In the background, the view of a sprawling wooded hill (Unebi-yama) is marvellous.
Many of the buildings were relocated here from Kyoto Imperial Place. Next to the shrine lies a 100m-long mausoleum of the emperor in the form of a low mound. An annual festival is held on 11 February.
