Maebashi Hachimangu Shrine前橋八幡宮


This Hachimangu Shinto shrine is thought to safeguard the area of Maebashi. Its history is said to date back to 859 when Nagano Narimasa, a descendant of Ariwara-no-Narihara, introduced the deity from Iwashimizu Hachimangu Shrine in Kyoto. The shrine honors Emperor Ojin, Hime Okami, and Empress Jingu. As Empress Jingu is considered a mother god, the faithful come to pray for blessings involving marriage, conception, safe delivery, and child rearing. An enormous sacred ginkgo tree on the grounds is officially protected by Maebashi City.

Gunma Main Areas


Gunma prefecture is synonymous with onsen. Natural hot spring water sources throughout the prefecture have given rise to a series of small onsen towns, each set among luscious mountains. At Kusatsu, Ikaho, and Minakami, traditional indoor and outdoor bathing experiences are served hand in hand with irresistible onsen-themed food, including steam-cooked eggs and custard pudding.
