Omi-jingu Shrine / Omi Kangakukan

Omi-jingu enshrines Emperor Tenji, who made Otsu, then called Otsu-kyo, Japan’s capital. The shrine’s main symbol is the two-storied gate coated with vermillion paint. Any serious player of the Japanese card game karuta aspires to come to the Omi Kangakukan, located on the shrine’s premises, to compete in a tournament that decides the best player in the country. Visitors can get a taste for what the game is like by wearing a hakama kilt and a ceremonial kimono.
The shrine has also recently garnered notice for its appearances in films.
