Most beautiful little temple, with a very convienient transportation to the foot of it's stairs. Not that many visitors, so it had a quiet serene feel to it. It has a free attached zoo very close to the shrine.

There were only very few tourists here as I visited; I am unsure if it is because I came here on the very first day of Japan's new year holidays. However, this is a very big shrine. Before the shrine, there were hundreds of stairs....More
