There are a lot of steps, but they're not very steep. Probably one of my favorite shrines in Japan so far, it just has a different look. It appeared as though there were hiking... read more

I went with my 4 children ranging from ages 5 to 17 and we all loved it very much! There are two starting points, one at the bottom base near the water and one... More

There are a lot of steps, but they're not very steep. Probably one of my favorite shrines in Japan so far, it just has a different look. It appeared as though there were hiking paths that lead to the other side of the mountain. We will return to further investigate. Definitely visit if you enjoy shrines and don't mind a... More
