The highlight of this shrine is the "Couple" tree. Actually, two gigantic trees growing side by side. Make a wish, walk around it together clockwise three times, and your wish will be granted.
The entire Takachiho area is difficult to get to. Many local people never visit because it is somewhat remote, not to mention trying to find the attractions. Best method is to book a tour. Ours was fill with visitors from the Fukuoka area. At only about US$80 per person, the all-day tour with two meals provided and several stops was a real bargain.
This will be a once in a lifetime tour for us and we were very glad that we did it.
