Kibitsuhiko Shrine

Japan, 1043 Ichinomiya, Kita-ku, Okayama City, Okayama Prefecture 701-1211

A highly prestigious shrine that was created as a branch of Kibitsujinja shrine. Kibitsuhiko no Mikoto, the model for Momotaro, is enshrined here. The combination of traditional shrine architecture and deep green trees creates a majestic and splendid atmosphere. The main shrine is designated as an important cultural property by the prefecture. Kibi Nakayama, which has been worshiped as a mountain of the gods since ancient times, is known as a power spot and the place where the gods descend. It is also called "Maya of the Asahi" because the morning sun rises in front of the torii gate on the day of the summer solstice. You can see Japan's largest stone lantern.
