Travel Guide - Katori-jingu Shrine

InformationInformation

Katori-jingu Shrine is one of the Three Great Shrines of the East Japan, along with Kashima-jingu Shrine and Ikisu-jinja Shrine in Ibaraki. The shrine is also the main shrine of 400 "Katori-jingu" shrines all over Japan. The Shrine consecrates Futsunushi-no-Okami, the tutelary god of armed force.
According to the legend, the shrine was founded over 2,000 years ago. The current Honden main hall was established by the 5th Tokugawa Shogun Tsunayoshi in 1700. The shrine's Romon gate was also established in 1700, and the plaque with the shrine's name placed on the gate was written by "the Nelson of the East", Togo Heihachiro. Both the Honden main hall and the Romon gate are designated as important cultural properties. Next to the gate, there is a cherry tree planted by Tokugawa Mitsukuni (Mito Komon). The cherry tree is called "Komon Zakura" from his nickname.
