Kasuga taisha
   The grand shrine of Kasuga, in Nara. With the Buddhist temple Kofukuji the shrine formed part of the pre-Meiji Kasuga daimyojin temple-shrine complex. It was named Kasuga jinja in 1871, having been 'purified' of Buddhist elements. The present name was adopted in 1946. The Kasuga shrine was ritually rebuilt (shikinen sengu) every twenty years until just before the Meiji restoration.
