Hokkaido Shrine was built in 1869, when Emperor Meiji ordered the enshrining of three deities. At the time, Hokkaido was known as Ezo but was renamed Hokkaido (Prefecture). The shrine sits on 180,000 square-meters of land filled with cherry trees. It looks very nice in spring, as the cherry blossoms can be see in full bloom then.
