If this shrine isn't significant to you from a cultural or religious (i.e., shinto) standpoint, you might still enjoy the serenity of the place, the novelty of seeing more lanterns that you can count, and walking through a forest of ancient trees -- that sort of thing.
This is the place where I saw ladies wearing headgear with a ball of wisteria bobbing at the front. Hoping for husbands, apparently, or so the guide explained. The ones I saw were unsmiling; I guess smiling is not required for that sort of thing.
I went here as part of the Nara Afternoon Tour provided by JTB. That helped because there aren't any signs to tell you what's going on.
I could go back, but if I'm in a hurry, visiting this place once in my life is okay.
