Hieta Shrine

The local shrine in Kamata

By Eitetsu Terakado    - 1 min read

Less than 10 minutes from Kamata Station is the local Hieta Shrine. Since it is not so famous, it is a peaceful place suitable for relaxing. One of the enshrined deities here is the sun goddess, Amaterasu Oomikami, considered to be the creator of the Japanese people. On the right-hand side of the main structure there are three smaller shrines with their own torii gate. By one of the shrines there is a small pond with “pure water” written in kanji. In the pond you can see tiny fishes swimming actively.

Love to travel, meet people, and try new things. When you travel you meet new people, when you meet people, you learn new things. The world is limited but there isn't an end to what I can learn.
