  • This is a very quiet Shinto Temple, easy walk from the station (10-15 minutes) walk. A long the lane leading to the temple are old Japanese house. The temple is free and very nice surrounding. Quiet.....  more »
  • This beautiful shrine surrounded by silence and huge trees conveys inner peace. Beautiful, imposing location. Not to be missed, well worth the visit.  more »
  • Very peaceful and serene. It's located at the bottom of the hill and surrounded by woods. You can walk around the place and climb up the hill, there are a few pathways and shrines here & there. The views from these paths are amazing.
  • Beautiful location, the walk up from the bridge gave a great old time feel, even in the humidity of summer. See video of approach walk to this area. The shrine is impeccably maintained, with lots to see in the surrounding setting. The floats exhibit hall was great, and the nikkokan museum mini scale models were even better! Worth a trip out to this side of town. Discount tickets only 500 yen if you buy both as a combo. We toured the area in about 60 minutes total.
