It is a quiet place in a touristy town. The shrine itself looks very nice and there are some beautiful trees in the garden.

I know there are a lot of shrines in Japan, but we went early in the morning and it was quiet and tranquil. An area to 'recharge your batteries' so to speak. Very peaceful.

This is located close to the Floating Exhibition hall. Can't be missed. A pleasant place to visit in the morning without the crowd.
