The Shinto Shrine I would recommend to visit on your way from Nikko Toshogu Shrine to Taiyuimbyu Shrine. It’s hidden in the forest of ancient pine trees and invites you to feel and appreciate traditional Japanese culture in a quiet and peaceful surroundings!

Under repair. Did walk around the grounds and looked at other parts that were open . Nice but not the best to see on the Heritage site. Save for last and if you have remaining time I would then check it out.

Nice shrine but very plain interior as this shrine is for couples who wish for matchmaking and good relationships. Otherwise little to see inside
