Go up the stone steps and follow the approach through the Three Torii, which combines three rare torii gates. Go through the main gate and head to the main shrine and the shrine. It is a beautiful and splendid color worship hall of the sculpture of detail. After the visit, you will receive power by touching the trunk of a cedar tree that is more than 800 years old, which is planted on the left and right of His Imperial Highness.
