Can visit on the way if it’s on your route! Rabbits are cute and the shrine is traditional. Take only around 10-15 mins walk around.

Hakuto Shrine, the Shrine of the Rabbit, brings good love fortune. A small shrine and a good stop after long hours of driving. Unfortunately it was closed on that day. Spent 30 mins at the highway stop and got some yummy fish cakes

I came here by car that we saw from street. We didn't know what's good for this shrine. But we are happy to pray together! 彼氏と訪れたので一緒にお参りできたお礼をしました。神社までは少し歩くのでその途中も白兎がいっぱいいて楽しめます!
