Achi-jinja Shrine阿智神社



This shrine stands atop a small hill in a corner of the Bikan Historical Quarter. The land is connected with the family of Achi no Omi, who came to Japan from the Korean Peninsula during the time of Emperor Ojin and helped develop Kibi Province, the predecessor to modern-day Okayama, with new technologies. The shrine grounds are home to the largest Akebono wisteria tree in the country; the best time to visit is when the tree is in bloom, from the end of April through May. The shrine sells Achi no Fujimori charms which contain wisteria seeds and are said to bring long life and good health.

Review of Achi Shrine

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/12/19 Peaceful visit with view of Kurashiki
High up in the hill overlooking Kurashiki, this Shrine is beautiful and quiet. We went in the evening near sunset. Explore the garden path going up or down the hill. A long staircase also can be used...
Reviewed:2019/08/19 Ok
Maybe we have seen to much, for us ok for a quick visit.
Take pictures from the Nice elder and newer city of kurashiki.
You can walk around it and takes not more then 15-25 min.
Reviewed:2019/07/25 Quiet stroll with good views
Good views of the surrounding areas here. A short hike up some storm steps takes you here. A good way to escape the crowds and take a quiet stroll and hear the insects and birds.

          Okayama Areas


          Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan's Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
