“Insightful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

Very insightful experience as, while i was there, I witnessed a number of customs practiced.

Firstly, I witnessed 2 traditional Japanese weddings at the temple, which was interesting as it is my first time watching a traditional Japanese wedding (I've never seen it on film or documentary)
secondly, The blessing of new cars, where new car owners drive their new cars to the front of the temple to be blessed.

Do look out for animals too, would be interesting to spot. Saw a fox and a very tamed squirrel.

“A simple shrine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

If you are used to shrines that displays grandeur, then Hokkaido Jingu would be vastly different. It is located within walking distance from Maruyama Koen subway station and located nearby the Maruyama Park. I was fortunate enough to witness a traditional wedding to make visiting the shrine worthwhile.

“Peaceful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012 via mobile

The moment I step into this place, I felt peace all around. Maybe it's the lack of people when I am there. Something to experience about the Japanese culture here; their beliefs. Nice stroll around with the cooling weather...
