Review of Chichibu Shrine

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/06/17 A fun for good fortune in Chichibu
A day of visiting many temples for a run of good fortune.
A place where the first japan coin was made.
Reviewed:2017/12/04 Well preserved shrine
A shrine with over 2100 years of history, rebuilt in the 1500s by Ieyasu is well preserved. The outside walls of the temple has exquisite carvings. Lots of tigers featured since Ieyasu was born in...

You can see famous sculptor Jingoro Hidari s works here. Good kill-time place together with Chichibu Matsuri Kaikan.

          Eclipsed by neighboring Tokyo, Saitama is often branded as the sleepy suburbs. However, look a little deeper and you’ll uncover quaint towns bursting with history and crafts from the kurazukuri Edo-period clay houses of Kawagoe to the ancient tree-enveloped temples of Chichibu.
