Unlike most others shrine, u r not allowed to go near by and see the structure, only outside the area gate. A natural forest among the shrine area, nothings special for others open to public shrine.

The Shrine itself is beautiful. Moreover, the park is very nice! Do not go by rainy weather. Spring and Automn may be the most beautiful moment to go there.

The shrine itself isn't very interesting. I've seen more spectacular shrines, but the shrine grounds are very large and shaded by trees. It's a nice walk - saw some Autumn colours even in December.

Given its location, many workers make a detour here before and after work for blessings and worship. We were here at sundown and saw many of these. Spent 30-45min here and enjoyed the nice stroll.

Perhaps by this trip we had seen enough temples and were less easily impressed. This one didn't have much in terms of scenery nearby- which really is the make-or-break point of temples as sightseeing places.

Went on a showery day. It was pretty, and nice to see families bringing their babies for a blessing.

One of Japan's most sacred places set in some verdant and tangled grounds. The trees change with the seasons from glorious swathes of camellia to autumn's "6 shades". You can look into the main shrine and see the representational stone paving but inside is off-limits to any but the imperial party. However there are walks that surround it, following the... More
