Constructed in 1890, this majestic shrine sits on the site where Jimmu, the first Emperor of Japan, is said to have ascended to the throne in 660 BC—according to the two oldest chronicles of Japan, Kojiki and Nihonshoki. Passing through a massive wooden torii and the Minami Shinmon (south shrine gate) on the Omote Sando (main approach), visitors are greeted by the sight of Mount Unebi and the Gehaiden (outer worship hall) standing at its base. From this worship hall, you can offer your prayers towards the Honden (main hall), where Emperor Jimmu and his empress are enshrined.
