Sightseeing Spots | Visit Chiba | Latest update:2022/07/25

This is one of the original three grand shrines in Japan that have the venerable title of 'jingu.' Katori Jingu holds an important place in Shintoism as the place where one of the deities responsible for claiming Japan for the heavenly 'kami' gods is enshrined. The shrine has historically been a hub for travelers looking to pay their respects, or participate in one of the many festivals that take place here throughout the year. The nature surrounding this shrine on a hill is lush and full of old-growth, whisking you away to ancient Japan with its natural beauty and classic architecture.
