Shinto shrine

Since Sugawara Michizane, the Shinto God of Learing, is enshrined here, many students taking entrance exams come to pray for good luck. Also known as a famous place for viewing wisteria flowers, this shrine holds a Fuji Matsuri from mid-April to early May.
In addition, with events such as the Ume Matsuri in which about 300 plum blossom trees bloom and the Kiku Matsuri, boasting displays of chrysanthemum flowers surrounding the entrance to the main shrine, flowers can be enjoyed in every season here.
On the shrine grounds are three bridges painted vermilion red. The Otokobashi, or "Male Bridge", represents the past, the Hirabashi, stands for the present, and the Onnabashi, or "Female Bridge", is said to express the future.

Highlights

  • The Shinto God of learning is worshipped here.
  • The shrine features beautiful taikobashi, or "drum bridges", painted vermillion.
  • From the middle of April to the beginning of May every year, the Fuji Matsuri is held. During this event, the wisteria plants are illuminated.
