We went here on a sunday, and there was a market. We were there around 3 pm, and they were packing the market down, but we still got to see and buy some cool stuff. A lot of tea-related things like pots and bowls. Really nice place!

Next to the hotel I stayed in. When I was visiting the shrine, there was a flea market going on, so it was very crowded. But we can still visit the shrine itself and look around. They have very cute omamori (good luck charms), and the omikuji I pulled was "Very Good Luck", so it was a great visit :)... More

Go around midnight on New Year's Eve and eat your way through the street vendor stalls selling just about everything. We always run into a sumo wrestler or two. Sundays there are (weather permitting) antique/flea markets on the grounds where you can stock up on gifts for yourself or friends back home. An out-of-the-way shrine which gives you a different...
