Dedicated to the Shinto goddess Wakahirume, Ikuta Shrine stands as one of the oldest structures of its kind in the country. Thought to have its origins in the 3rd century, the shrine has survived the destruction of Japan's medieval-era civil wars and World War II. The classic architecture of swooped roofs, wooden pillars, and stone statues is accented by a red-and-gold color scheme. Enjoy some time outdoors by wandering the grounds and discovering the duck pond and pathways around the shrine.

Ikuta Shrine Reviews
三ノ宮駅から北に向かって5分ほどの場所にあります。 商店街や大人のお店が立ち並ぶ先にあるので、何故こんなところに？というイメージで来ました。駐車場あり。 more »It is about 5 minutes north of Sannomiya Station. It's just a few places before the shopping district and adult shops, so why not go to a place like this? I came in the image that. There is a parking lot.
JR、阪急、地下鉄から好アクセス。縁結びの神様として有名です。三宮の駅近くにあるにもかかわらず、駐車場もあります。（有料） more »Good access from JR, Hankyu and subway. It is famous as the god of the marriage. There is also a parking lot near Sannomiya Station. (Charges apply)
This is my first visit to this shrine. It is just beside the Kobe sannomiya station. It is centered between the busiest street. Once you entered inside the premises it gives a calmness, pleasant and I was so admired their worship pattern. They have blocked the way to go near to the idol. But, still we could see it. It's different experience.
It's one of the most quite places in Kobe. If you wanna meditate yourself, you should stop by the shrine. In search of peace of mind, you'd literally start liking the place. Feel the vibe
