With the suggestion of Nagaoka Masami, Emperor Meiji ordered in 1868, the enshrinement of Kikuchi Taketoki, who worked for the emperors, and a shrine was built on the site of the old Kikuchi castle in Kikuchi City. Kikuchi Taketoki was enshrined on April 28, 1870. The shrine is classified as a Bekkaku Kanpeisha (shrines for those with distinguished services to the state). In March 1923, Kikuchi Takeshige and Kikuchi Takemitsu were also enshrined at the same location. On September 1952, the shrine was made a Religious corporation. In 1970, a Kumonoe-guu building and a historical museum were also built on shrine grounds. On April 28, 2000, the shrine celebrated its 130th year anniversary.
Kikuchi Shrine Reviews
くる途中に、急な大雨に見舞われる。前が見えないぐらいに。車だったので大丈夫だったが、バイクならえらいこっちゃぁ〜である。 こちらは割と大きな神社である。駐車場に車を置き、坂道を上り門が見えてくる。入り口を入ると右手に参拝所が見え、左手にお札やお守りが売っている。お祓いを申し込んでいる人もいた。なんかあるなら払ってもらいたいものだ more »On the way, we were hit by a sudden heavy rain. I can't see the front. It was fine because it was a car, but it's great if it's a motorcycle. This is a big shrine. I put my car in the parking lot and went up the hill and saw the gate. When you enter the entrance, you will see a shrine on your right hand side, and you will see bills and amulets on your left. Some people were applying for an exorcism. If there's anything, I want you to pay.
