真っ直ぐに伸びる奥参道が最大の魅力の神社と言えます。明治神宮の参道と同じような印象を受けますが、参拝客が少ないことや鬱蒼とした森の緑は遥かに濃く感じ、不気味さと神秘性を兼ねた雰囲気を味わうことができます。境内は無料で利用できるため、森の空気を深呼吸しながら静かに散策するには丁度いいスポットかもしれません(宝物館は300円の入場料がかかります)。 境内の建築物は、見た目だけでは、いわゆる典型的な神社建築で、特筆すべき様式や彫刻といったものはありません。奇を衒うことなく古来からの神社の格式を変わらず伝えていることに感銘を受けました。そのため、より深く神社の歴史を知るために、ガイドと一緒に散策することをお勧めします。 I think that the greatest appealing spot of this shrine is a straight approaching way. The approaching way looks like it of Meiji Jingu Shrine, actually walking, you'll have a completely different impression. Not to mention that there are few worshipers, you'll feel...More

It's the second time I go there and it's like a magic spot in the middle of the town, you can see birds, deer, big trees and beautiful temples.

Kashima Jingu is within a huge area of natural forrest in which there are many beautiful old cedar trees. It is about one hour by local train from Narita Station and worth a visit if you have a spare day.
