Kibitsu jinja
   A shrine in Okayama, dedicated to the kami Kibitsu-hiko-no-mikoto, one of the sons of the legendary seventh emperor Korei. He is credited with defeating Korean invaders and developing the region. His son is the children's folk-hero Momotaro. A wooden statue (shinzo) serves as the shintai. The shrine epitomises the kibi- or kibitsu-zukuri style. The shinsen (food offerings) at the two grand festivals comprise seventy-five dishes carried in single file by shrine servants.
