  • It is a shrine with a lot of foreign tourists and young people. There is also a wedding hall. It's not that big, but is it a lantern hanging in a dim corridor? There is, has been given a nice display in the windmill and wind chimes. There were a lot of people who also had a camera. However, i was worried that the cleaning was not enough. Fallen leaves and garbage are also quite fallen. Because there are a lot of worshippers for the scale, it might be not easy to turn, but the original role of the priest is to keep the god area clean. There is something to do before insta shine I thought. I'm sorry for the comment from the top.

  • 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. I think it is most beautiful at night, but a daytime visit will allow you to appreciate the sun through the leaves of the great tree toward the rear of the shrine. It's small, but lovely.
  • Shrine's not too crowded on a weekend. It's a 10 min walk from the main eating alleys and the famed clock tower. You could take the bus loop if you are lazy to walk. For me, it's another shrine so didn't pay too much detail before leaving
