Nice and cosy

It's not a big shrine, but it's cosy and beautiful. It's located at the hakusan park, so you can visit both :)

Have never seen such a beautiful old building that is so special for children...so many parents and grandparents bringing the little ones to the shrine for a special blessing on their birthdays...

Hakusan Shrine makes up a part of Hakusan Park. It's torii gates and lanterns dress up the park and make it more fun to stroll through. The shrine itself isn't very large but its wooden buildings are nice to look at, walk through and offer a prayer at.

There is lovely parkland around the shrine. Be sure to see the statue commemorating the dog who saved his owner. The shrine itself is traditional and very active. Many weddings are performed here. 45 yen is recommended to get the attention of the Kami. Very close to the city offices.

Thank Father_Stephen
