Kibiji District (Kibi Plains), Okayama: 6 reviews and 25 photos
Kibitsuhiko Shrine is dedicated to Prince Kibitsuhiko-no-mikoto, who is known for being the heroine of the tale that, over time, became the famous tale of Momotaro!
The main shrine was rebuilt in 1697. It was built in the Sangensha Nagare architectural style, which is quite beautiful and impressive. The pathway leading up to the shrine has ponds on each side and to the right of the shrine is a nice statue of the folk hero Momotaro with his animal friends. Although the nearby Kibitsu Shrine is more famous, it's well worth it to stop here as well. Those on the Kibi Cycling Trail will see both.
Entrance to the shrine is free.
