Achi-jinja Shrine

Shrine
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.

    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...
