Interesting shrine, it is the head shrine of the Hakusan faith and the grand shrine charged with protecting the Hokuriku region. It is also the starting point for a climb to the top of Mt. Haku, a source of water for Ishikawa, Fukui and Gifu prefectures.
Beautiful trees, fresh air. It is a very popular shrine to come for best wishes for New Year. Usually very crowded from 11AM, the traffic jam could be as long as 2 km, so my recommendation is to go there early in the morning before 10AM to not only enjoy fresh air but also the ancient, fuzzy smog there. Usually there is snow during New Year, and the big fire pit in the center of entrance is a specular point.
