It is a nice 20 minute walk up to the shrine which is thought to be dedicated to women and people seeking love. Worth a visit.

This is the highlight of a long walk. I didn't know what to expect and I don't think I was expected something grand . To me it's more the experience of the whole walk up to this final point and it's absolutely satisfying. This low...More

Maybe because of the great reviews, I had too high of expectations for Takinoo shrine. Some things to keep in mind: 1. The walk is a little far from the main shrine area. This is a good thing in that it means a lot fewer...More
