An incredible x rated shrine. Well worth a visit - hilarious with somber overtones. Quite extraordinary.

I have seen many shrines in Japan, nut this one was so special to me. Just being in the presence gives you a feeling of the culture. Amazing plants and sculpture entrap you. I spent quite some time here exploring and meditating.

The kind of place you never forget having been. It feels ancient and surreal. The gardens and birds and breezes through the trees. Amazing...

We always stay at the Richmond Hotel in Narita City on our trips to Japan to visit family and this shrine complex is an easy walk to clear your head before or after a long overseas flight. The grounds are a very beautiful and peaceful retreat in a rather bustling small town.
