Beautiful Autumn in Kirishima Shrine

A misty & rainy trek of over 10 km to the Kirishima Shrine from our hotel. Witnessing the beautiful changing colors of Autumn and devotees paying respects at the shrine.

It is a large bright red shrine set against deep green and very tall pine trees. It is beautiful. The breezes are especially refreshing amidst very hot summer weather.

Despite it being very rainy there were many many people here. It made taking pictures hard. All in all it's an average shrine. The crowds take away a lot of the ambiance.

I've visited quite a few shrines in Japan, mostly are big and too touristy. Kirishima shrine is so far the best I've seen and somehow very special, it's not too touristy and feels original. Nice, serene and small shrine.

When I walked up to the shrine, i can feel the peaceful environment surrounded me and I can feel so clam. Worth to spend some time to take photo and walk around. Noted: better to go in the morning

It is what it is. Moved 500 years ago to this position but unlike other shrines visited its been built out and you can't get access to the older part. You see it in the background, its like new planning permission building out but history is back there somewhere. Obviously it is spiritual for committed visitors but like church architecture...

Very attractive walks leading up to the shrine, with high trees around the buildings there. There was a wedding taking place when we were there, and you can see why people would want to get married there. Worth a stop if you are passing through.
