  • This shrine is apparently the centre of Japan (which part of Japan, all of it? Just Honshu? Who knows, but there you go) so it's a "power spot". It's also interesting because, unusually, the torii gates do not face the main shrine hall. Instead, they're placed so that on winter solstice the sun rises inside one gate and sets in the other. There are some ducks in the pond you can feed and there are good festivals here as well.
  • Absolutely gorgeous shrine with a unique bridge a wonderful pond and several brilliantly colored buildings. A perfect example of making the most of a space. My favorite place in Ueda
