newly renovated cafe, lovely views
Aug 2017 • Friends
a lovely temple set up high on a mountain, and surrounded with trees. recently, the locals have opened a new cafe, though opening hours are not yet steady as it is run by volunteers, and are working on setting up a children's play area and campsite ni various spots around the temple. the temple itself is lovely - especially if you go around the back - the wood carving on the furthest back part of the temple is simply stunning! definitely a good place to go in autumn I think, as there were many trees that will definitely change colour, which will make it even more stunning!

Cool shrine/temple
Aug 2017 • Friends
This is a cool shrine/temple to visit (and yes, it is both a shrine and temple. They're located a three minute drive from each other.)

Because it's so quiet, you have a chance to really walk around and see the structures. At the shrine, there's a neat little outdoor covered patio with a bunch of really old paintings on display. If you get there around noon, you'll be able to hear the caretaker hitting the taiko drum to let all the workers in the surrounding fields that it's time for lunch. The temple, for itself, has some very interesting word carvings on a couple of it's buildings. It also contains part of the shrine, and that mingling is very rare in Japan.

No entrance fees, no Japanese required. Be prepared for narrow winding roads up the side of a mountain.
