Kasai Shrine




A shrine with a beautiful red building and guardian lion-dog statues

A history-rich shrine that was built at the end of the Heian Period (794 - 1185). The 6,000 square meter grounds are beautiful to visit in every season. Visitors can admire cherry blossoms and azaleas in spring, lush greenery in summer and the yellow ginkgo trees in autumn. Kasai Shrine hosts an annual festival in September and the Tori no Ichi market in November. It's also known as the birthplace of Matsuri Bayashi, a traditional festival music. The grounds have a shrine dedicated to Benten, a deity deeply connected with economic fortune. It is said that stroking the statue of the white snake will bring you good fortune.
