Established in 710, Kasuga Taisha Shrine, which was built as the patron saint of the Fujiwara family at the time, was called the three major shrines of Japan together with Ise Shrine and Shisuisui Hachimangu Shrine. It represents the magnificent and elegant classical architecture of the Heian era. It is a Shinto Shrine with a blend of Buddhism and Taoist architecture. There is a spring festival in March every year.
The mosque is very long. There are many towering trees in the past. There are countless lanterns and copper chandeliers on both sides. They are all contributed by nobles, warriors and general believers. It is said that there are 1 stone lanterns.
Along with Fushimi Inari of Kyoto, this was one of the best religious place in Japan. The walk up to it is magical surrounded by forest, stone lanterns and of course, deer. The temple itself is not very large but worth the entrance fee as inside it is full of ornately decorated metal lanterns and there is a room where you can see them lit up. I also got lucky as a wedding ceremony was taking place so I got a bit of a taste for what that is like. Even though it is a bit far from the park entrance do not miss this if you're in Nara, not only is it worth the walk but the walk is part of the beauty. Very tranquil and relaxing to walk. Well suited to anyone who enjoys photography the area lends itself to the camera with interesting old trees and structures and contrasts.
The Kasuga Taisha Shrine in Nara is the head office and has been built since 768 AD. There are as many as 3,000 Kasuga branches in Japan and 3,000 donated stone lanterns.
From the map, Kasuga Taisha is near Nara Park. You don't want to walk through a long section of Shizi Road to get there. Pushing a baby stroller is quite hard.
On the way to Kasuga Taisha, an Italian tourist saw the yukata of the meat brother and wanted to take a photo and share it with her family.
Kasuga Taisha Shrine is a beautiful place to visit, the deer next to the trail is also contaminated with the aura of the shrine, which is not the same as the deer encountered in the former Nara Park.
The Kasuga Taisha Shrine, built in the early 8th century and built for the patron saint of the Fujiwara family, the ruler of the time, is one of the four major families of ancient Japan. Based on this, in the shrine, Teng is also one of the characteristics of this place. Here, the deer is also the messenger of God. Therefore, there are so many deer in Nara Park. Perhaps this is one of the reasons?
Along the sides of the pilgrimage, there are more than 3,000 donated stone lanterns and Nara dew hidden in the forest. It is said that the autumn colors are beautiful and full of ginkgo. At that time, there may be full Mood?
In the shrine, I often see wooden frames or trees covered with white paper strips, usually called Yushen. Generally speaking, if the sign-up letter seeks a good sign, most of them will take it home to hope for luck and blessing. In the coming year, they will bring it back to the shrine to throw it away or burn it at home. If you ask for a relatively lacking sign, you will hang it on this god. Pray for transshipment on the shelf or on the tree of God!
