We went to get my stamp in my temple book and had a quick look around. It wasn’t very crowded. I would go here if you were visiting Nawate Street as well.

After visiting the busy Matsumoto Castle, it was wonderful to come to this quiet and peaceful shine. Perfect for capturing the autumn colours. And right next to the merchant street by the river. It was one of our highlights in Matsumoto.

We ran across this shrine on our way to the castle, it was very natural and private. The tiny tori gate and the nature next to it were really nice.

On the way to Matsumoto Castle and by the side of Nawate Shopping Street is the lovely shrine with a peaceful environment. We took a few photos around the spot and proceed to other tourist spots nearby. Recommended.

Walking from the castle to Frog street without knowing this shrine was there, I stumbled upon it and got to discover some Japanese religion. There was even a newly wed couple having their pictures taken in traditional clothing. Interesting to see but not much to...More

Chanced upon this shrine while walking along nawate street and towards the castle. Nice little spot for photos and the bonus was the wedding held today

This shrine is closer to the castle, but... it is not so "special". Fukashi is "better". OK, so if you have time -- visit both... If you do not, go to Fukashi and then pass by this one... give it a glance and... move on...

A very quiet and beautiful place in the heart of the city. When we visited there was some sort of ceremony taking place so we stayed back. I believe it was a wedding because a photographer was set up in front of the shrine. It...More
