Excellent historic shrine. Origins date back to the 600s. Small row of red gates behind the main building. Saw some priests doing a ritual while we were there. Nice taiko drum in the main building. Worth the visit, but a little hard to get to without a car.

Taga Taisha is one of my favorite temples in Shiga! It's got a bit of everything and is in a super cute area, complete with a few omiyage shops. If you can be there for a festival you're in luck! I've been several times and whenever I need a quick temple fix I'll go back!!
