Surrounded by an ancient cedar forest, Kashima Jingu, is dedicated to a local patron deity of martial arts. In the 16th century, one of Japan's major sword masters frequently visited this site, eventually establishing a martial arts school named after this shrine . As you take a peaceful stroll through the complex, look for reflecting ponds and stone lanterns, just two examples of the temple's notable outdoor features.
