Shizu-jinja Shrine (静神社)
This Shinto shrine is located in Shizu, Naka City. Although the exact date of its founding is unknown, it's estimated to be over 850 years old. The main deities it honors are the warrior god Takehazuchi-no-Mikoto and Shitori-no-Kami, the ancestral god of weaving. An autumn festival takes place annually from November 25th to 27th. Many visitors come at that time when they hold ceremonies like Tsuta Mai and Osasa Myojin. The hill on the western side of the grounds makes up Shizumine Furusato Park, a famous cherry blossom viewing spot.

Just a stone's throw from Tokyo, Ibaraki is a coastal prefecture that has mastered juxtapositions, where old shrines meet new scientific discoveries and traditional gardens are frequented by the inventors of some of the newest technology. Head to Mito City's Kairakuen - one of Japan's Three Great Gardens - in spring to experience the cellestial blooming of fantastic cherry blossoms at the annual sakura festival.
