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.

It only took us around 10-15 minutes on foot from Matsumoto station to here. It was the first day of our trip, and when we came to this shrine, we realized we had come to Japan because of its atmosphere and unique culture. It was...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...

Noticed this shrine is because it's just right beside Nawate Street, and we saw many locals will just drop by & pray. We reliased it is a good spot watching locals do their prayers. A very quiet zen place.

It was a lovely Japanese Shrine, I came across after the walk of Nawate Shopping District. Since it was a new year period, there were some games shops, food stores and Japanese praying items selling outside the shrines. There were many people queueing to go...More

This Shrine and area are just a short 7/8 minute walk from castle and worth wandering by on your way to or from. Nothing outstanding by Japanese Shrine standards, but like all of Matsumoto has a very authentic feel to it.
