Hokkaido Jingu: Making Roots at Hokkaido’s Grand Shrine – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

Constructed in 1869 by the order of the emperor, Hokkaido Jingu was founded to offer spiritual support to Hokkaido’s early colonists. Consequently, the deities housed within, such as Okunitama, Onamuchi, Sukunahikona, have direct relationships with the nature and land of Hokkaido. If you are planning a visit, be sure to check out the event calendar as Shinto practices and festivals are held all year round. Should you travel in the Springtime, do not miss the glorious spectacle of the 1,400 Japanese cherry blossom trees blooming across the shrine grounds’ 18 hectares.
