Enjoy the elegant vermillion, golden, and black color scheme of Katori Jingu Shrine, the most prominent of several hundred Shinto Katori shrines in an imposing early 1700s building set in a large forest. Dedicated to a warrior god, the shrine enjoyed great popularity among the samurai. It also gives its name to one of the three major sword-fighting styles in Japan, and was revered by the Imperial Court as a guardian shrine of the nation. Many impressively old, large trees around the shrine remain preserved due to a taboo. Colorful seasonal processions take place at the shrine, while plenty of good restaurants around the temple offer "unagi," a freshwater eel specialty.

Katori Jingu Shrine Reviews
三重県伊勢神宮、千葉県香取神宮、茨城県鹿島神宮の日本三神宮らしい。香取神宮は他の二つと比べると体力的にしんどくなくまわれる。3つ目のシールも手に入る。 more »It seems to be The Three Shrines of Japan in Ise Grand Shrine in Mie Prefecture, Katori Shrine in Chiba Prefecture, and Kashima Shrine in Ibaraki Prefecture. Compared to the other two, Katori Jingu is physically exhausted. You can also get a third seal.
東京オリンピックに向けてスポーツ選手の戦勝祈願がますます増えるであろう、戦神として知られる経津主神を祭る香取神宮。 香取神宮の魅力はその御神域にとどまらず、周辺の里山にもあります。 ご神水を使って作る「岩立本店のわらび餅」をお土産に買ったら、一滴の水も使わずに柿の実だけでつくる自然の酵素のチカラ漲る柿酢「柿の神髄」を醸造する酢之宮醸造所を訪ねてその暮らしぶりに触れ、東京中野で居酒屋を営んでいた主人... more »Katori Shrine enshrines the Tsunetsu lord god known as the god of war, which will be more and more prayers for athletes to win the Tokyo Olympics. The charm of Katori Jingu is not only in the Sacred Area, but also in the surrounding Satoyama area. When I bought "Warabi-mochi of Iwatachi Head Office" made using shinsui as a souvenir, I visited the Vinegar Palace Brewery, which brews the "the essence of persimmons" which is a natural enzyme made only with the fruit of persimmons without using a drop of water, and touched it for the first time in its life. I stayed at my husband's lodging, which was running an izakaya in Nakano, Tokyo. By spending such a relaxed time, you can rediscover that you have a way of life that tends to be lost in a busy life, and that you live from the inside.
