Ujigami Shrine

0 0 Reviews

Located in Uji, the city renowned for green tea, Ujigami shrine is Japan’s oldest existing shrine. Among the country’s thousands of shrines, Ujigami shrine was one of the first — allegedly built during the year 1060. Although the shrine is rather off the beaten track, its convenient location makes it easy to combine visits with nearby Byodo-in Temple and Uji-gawa Shrine.

Built in the late Heian period (794 - 1185), the honden building in Ujigami-jinja is especially unique due to its old nagare-zukuri-style architecture. It is one the oldest remaining examples of nagare-zukuri design, its distinctive feature being the three inner shrine structures being built side-by-side with the largest in the middle. Despite being made entirely of wood, it has survived almost a thousand years without being damaged by fire or man-made disasters.


Tatezuna are the large conical sand mounds sitting at the entrance of the Haiden building, where devotees come to offer money and pray to the shrine gods. The sand mounds are said to represent sacred mountains, and are built to ward off evil and protect the site.
