Tada-jinja Shrine was established in 970. Tada-jinja Shrine is steeped in history. Five military commanders from one of Japan's most storied warrior clans, the Genji, are enshrined here. On the second Sunday in April, the Genji Festival is held here. You can view a parade at this festival. In the parade, samurai warriors ride on horseback. Princesses in beautiful kimono also appear in the parade. The festival coincides with the brief flowering of the cherry blossoms, creating an unforgettably beautiful scene.
