What people say

"Nestled amid the vibrant streets of Kobe, the Ikuta Shrine stands as a serene oasis steeped in history and tranquility. This ancient Shinto shrine, with its peaceful ambiance and verdant surroundings, offers a serene escape from the urban hustle. Stepping through its sacred torii gate, visitors are greeted by a sense of reverence and charm. The shrine's timeless beauty, nestled amidst towering trees and stone pathways, invites contemplation and exploration. With its centuries-old legacy, cultural significance, and serene atmosphere, Ikuta Shrine stands as a cherished cultural gem in Kobe, welcoming visitors to immerse themselves in its spiritual essence and embrace a moment of peaceful reflection amidst the city's vibrant energy."
"Ikuta Jinja is one of those hidden gems in Kobe that you can't miss. This Shinto shrine has a deep history (it's about 1800 years old!), making it one of the oldest in Japan. It's dedicated to Wakahirume-no-Mikoto, the goddess of fabric, but it's worshipped for something quite special - bringing people together, just like entwined threads. It is a power spot for love and relationships."
"Visiting this small temple was so nice. As it is not as popular as the ones in Kyoto and Tokyo, there were really few people and it felt more spiritual. When I went it was drizzling, so it gave it a mystical energy all around. Very peaceful."
