We found this place by accident, looking for our hotel, but it was quiet and relaxing, there were not so many people there when we walked around.

The shrine was very easy to access and while its in the city its very relaxed and peaceful. It closes early so look at the opening times first.

Ikuta Shrine is one of the oldest in Japan it is said, probably at least 1,500 years old. However most of the buildings are fairly modern-looking. Japanese shrines are rebuilt periodically so don't expect to see ancient buildings. It is quiet early on and only...More

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.

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!
