Ikuta Shrine is connected to the founding of Kobe. The shrine’s goddess is Wakahiru-me-no-Mikoto, the goddess of giving birth to all that is young, dewy and vital. There are nice souvenirs and talismans that can be bought from the counters serviced by Makos (shrine maidens)....More

Worth a visit, it is free and you can go right in. The Shrine is beautifully designed and captures the Japanese ethos.

This temple is large and right in the centre of Kobe. It was quite busy when we were there. Colourful, with lots of detail. We enjoyed visiting this temple.

Even though this temple is just off the busy roads of Kobe this is probably the most peaceful Japanese temple that I have been to and there doesn't seem to be many people around. Definitely worth a visit and it was nice rest location.

Japanese temples are always interesting and neat. This one is a quite haven at the heart of the Kobe city center. Take some picture. Rest on the bench. And feel the silence.

This is a beautiful shrine in the heart of Kobe. The day we visited, there was a wedding which was special to see. Definitely worth a visit during Sakura!

Beautiful shrine compound in the middle of Kobe. Several shrines around the main building and a walking/wooded area for a short walking meditation.

This shrine is very well looked after. Looks very new, huge and pretty and is very centrally located. Close to Tokyo Hands, shops, restaurants, and department stores. Ikuta is a busy shopping street. But inside the shrine, it's vey serene.

Enjoy my short visit to this shrine. It’s very close to Sanomiya train station and feels like a peaceful place in middle of the town. I love the temizu instruction to purify oneself (even in English) at the entrance
