The shrine is peaceful and very beautiful in winter. A leisurely stroll from Maruyama Park to the shrine is relaxing. It's also near to Maruyama Zoo.

The walk through Marayuma Park was excellent and the shrine was surrounded with beautiful trees. Not far from Marayuma Station at all. We did the Fortune Lucky Dip for ¥100 which was fun (and so very accurate!). That’s about it though.

You will need to walk through the Maruyama Park before reaching the shrine. It was a beautiful journey to the shrine through the snowy park. Amazing scenery. The shrine itself is not as spectacular, but it's good for a visit and a prayer. However, if...More

I am a free thinker. Did not find the shrine too spectacular but blessed with nice Spring weather, we were there and enjoy the visit. The space allows my 2 kids (4 and 6 year old) to run all over.

Took a slow walk through the trees to this unique shrine. Very clean and peaceful. Everyone can say a little prayer and make your wish here. Around the garden you can see Sakura blossoms and other beautiful blooming trees in May.
