The local tour bus will stop here before entering main tourist area. Quiet and calm atmosphere. Many not significant compared with other Japanese temples, you can cherish the unusual calmness there. By the way, nice and cute souvenirs there. (御守)

This is a nice shrine at the far end of the old town on a river - nothing worth going out of your way for but perfectly OK.
