This is a very unique shrine. Due to the number of foreign guests who come for the pottery, signs are in many languages, so it was easier to appreciate the history of the shrine. The ema of the shrine were made of porcelain, which I found very cool. Much of the shrine has various Aritaware, so it makes for very striking photos against the fall foliage. It’s pretty easy to hike to the top from the base. It took about 10 minutes with stops for photos and appreciation of the sights. I strongly recommend visiting this shrine when visiting Arita and Saga Prefecture.
Very nice shrine that welcomes people with a lot of Arita-like ceramics/porcelains. The shrine is not so easy to access and impossible to reach for people in wheelchairs or elderly. The View over Arita is amazing from there!
