It’s amazing that there is a shrine like this along a busy shopping street, it’s very well preserved. I don’t know much about humanities or history, so I went to see a similar building, nothing special.
It is located across from the old settlement of Daimaru and has a lot of history. In 1868, the Kobe Incident took place here, when a clash took place between a clan of the Bizen Clan and several foreign sailors, at a time when the Meiji Restoration was not yet firmly established. In the past, Japan was also trampled on by the powers.
Behind the shrine is the Daimaru department store.
Sannomiya Shrine is located in Sannomiya Ward, on the main street, and is a very small shrine. Behind the shrine is the Daimaru department store, where the Kobe Incident of 1868, in which a clash took place between a clan of the Bizen clan and several foreign sailors, led to the tragedy that Captain Takizen was forced to commit harakiri to quell the incident.
The shrine is very small, but it is the site of an important historical event. It is located next to the Daimaru department store on China town.
