Shrine

Also known as “Hakozaki Hachiman-gu Shrine,” alongside Usa Hachiman-gu Shrine and Iwashimizu Hachiman-gu Shrine this is one of the three great Hachiman-gu Shrines of Japan. Emperor Ojin is the main enshrined deity, along with Empress Jingu and Tamayori-hime. In Nishioku there is the “Ajisai Garden” and “Shinen Flower Park,” with spring being the best time to see peonies, and the early summer best for hydrangeas. The “Tamaseseri Festival” that takes place each January 3 is a famous festival in which there are two wooden balls that represent yin and yang and bring good fortune and the contestants vie over the “yang” ball.
