Akama Shrine

 

Akama Shrine located in Shimonoseki, enshrines the Heike clan and 
the young Emperor Antoku, who died in the battle against the 
powerful samurai clan, Genji. 

Sentei Festival is held in May every year.
This festival was started when court ladies visited the grave of 
the Emperor Antoku and prayed for this young emperor 
who died at a mere eight years old during the battle between 
the Heike and the Genji.
