The shrine is a bit away from JR Morioka Station (15020min bus ride). We rode a bicycle. The shrine is bigger than Sakurayama Shrine near Morioka castle and painted beautiful red and gold. Before going to the main shrine, stop by the area where old offerings are stored (old paper darma, ...etc) and small shrines are, too. At the main shrine, you can fish your fortune fish.

There's a small museum which is open only on Saturday, but it has only one Yamakasa display, so not worth all the way to visit museum on Saturday. The museum is located to the right beyond parking when you enter the gate.

At the entry of the shrine, there are 2 restaurants. One is more of a cafe, another one is restaurant which serves local fruit juice and pork. Our lunch was very delicious.

The shrine used to be considered City Hall so the main street in the city of Morioka leads right up to the front of the shrine, allowing you to stand at the top of the steps and view the entire city.

We had the privilege of having a tea ceremony and dressing up in yukatas while visiting the shrine. It is a very spiritual and beautiful place and the ceremony and wearing of the costume was fabulous and colorful.

I did not plan to go to this temple as it is not often mentioned in travel guides. On the day I went there, I walked along the shopping street and saw a temple at the far end. It seemed to be very nice to take a visit. I did go there and it proved to be a good choice.

A very friendly Shrine where everyone feels welcome, even when it is very crowded.
Enjoy a leisurely walk around the many buildings in and around the shrine, or visit the special shrine area to ask for good future...

I often find the charm of a shrine can be lost when it is too packed with tourists, so visiting Morioka Hachimangu when just the locals were around was a nice change. There isn't much that is particularly striking about the shrine other than its place at the end of a road, but in winter you can spend a good 30 mins exploring the shrine with only a few other people around.

It was full with culture and a beautiful view of the main street in Morioka City.

I got to ring the traditional ceremony bells and watch the correct way of making prayer.

They also have "good luck" charms for everything, called Omamori. They have one for everything!
