If you're going to the top of Hodosan to take in the blooming wintersweet and plum trees, by all means stop at this picturesque shrine, where you can buy a fortune in the shape of a miniature fan, along with seasonal local edibles.

Hodosan shrine's grounds can be walked around in 10 minutes or so, and the shrine and out-building, torii, etc. added nice architectural elements to combine with photos of the maple trees.
