Kawagoe Hikawa Shrine Reviews
外国人観光客や若い人が多い神社です。結婚式場もあります。それほど広い所ではありませんが、薄暗い回廊に吊り灯籠？があったり、風車や風鈴でステキなディスプレイが施されてます。カメラもってる人もたくさんいました。 ただ気になったのは、お掃除が十分でない事です。落ち葉やゴミも結構落ちています。規模の割に参拝者が多い感じなので、手が回らないのかもしれませんが、神職の本来の役目は神域を清浄に保つことです。イン... more »It is a shrine with a lot of foreign tourists and young people.

My initial reactions to the wedding/event space were negative, but the shrine spaces are secluded from the garishness of the more modern building. There are all manner of shrine attractions here.
