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.

  • Incredibly beautiful and quiet.

  • Worth visiting.

  • 綺麗な神社でした。 社務所の方も親切で大変良かったです。 美しい神社にお参りすると気持ちもスッキリします。 感謝です。

  • いろいろな護国神社を回っていますが、そのなかでも社務所の方々の対応が丁寧でした。御朱印は300円で書き置きもあります。

  • 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.
