Gokoku Shrine - Review

The name of the shrine literally means ‘Shrines for the protection of the nation’ which means a shrine dedicated to the individuals who died in the national wars. There are basically two kinds of Shrine, one that is saved for certain personalities like ministers and others that are not designated. Himeji Yasukuni Shrine is a non-designated one open to both visitors and foreigners. It is a mere 5 minutes distance from Himeji castle and offers a quiet and tranquil surrounding to its visitors. Many of them are also nature lovers who come with the camera to capture its beauty in it. A simple stroll across its compound and a little praying session in front of the local is enough to calm anyone and fill them with peace.

Gokoku Shrine, Himeji Reviews

  • Incredibly beautiful and quiet.

  • Worth visiting.

  • Un bonito santuario, aunque tampoco tiene nada de especial, salvo que se encuentra pegado al castillo de Himeji pero fuera del complejo. Por eso, suele estar muy vacío y sin turistas. Ideal si queréis ver algo más que el castillo cuando estéis en Himeji.

  • 姫路城の隣りに鎮座しています。非常に厳かで心が洗われます。 姫路城の喧噪の疲れを癒やしてくれます。

  • (17/12/07) 御朱印をいただきました。 (17/03/23) 御朱印をいただきました。 御祭神  戊辰の役以降国難に殉ぜられた兵庫県西部地域出身者の御霊5万余柱命 主な祭日  春季慰霊祭:5月5日 秋季慰霊祭:11月2日 姫路城のすぐ隣にある神社です。 神姫バスの姫路城ループバス 1日乗車券  神姫バス姫路駅前案内所にて  大人 300円 / 小人 150円です。 有料駐車場があります。
