Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Despite its relative remoteness definitely wirth a visit. Great landscape settings. The old bridge is actually open to the public and has some wooden pieces attached to help visitors retain their footing

This is the obligatory stop for the travels up the Mt Koya. You pray and appease the local mountain deity. There are old cedar trees, and of course the bridge. The temple design is regular shinto.

The origin of the shrine is very old. At least 1700 years ago it appeared in document. It means the real origin of worship for the mountains are hundreds of years ago.
One of the big neme of Japanese Buddhism monk, Kukai, trained his body and mind in his younger days and after studied buddhism in China he decided to build the bed stone of his temple in the shrine's mountains. The main worshiped presence is goddess Niutsu-hime. She grew Kukai's new buddhism in her mountains.
素晴らしい神社です。主祭神の丹生都比売さまの「丹」=「赤」の名にふさわしい壮麗な社殿と太鼓橋。境内に神社の発展に寄与されたお坊様のお社がある、なんとも他には類のない神社さま。境内横には、高野山との強い繋がりを残すような曼荼羅碑があります。車がないと交通の便は良いとは言えない場所ですが、その価値があります。2月いっぱいは境内向かいのお茶屋さんも営業されていないとのこと、バスで伺う方はご注意くださいませ。

This is an ancient shrine dedicated to Amaterasu's sister, Niutsuhime. There are more than 100 shrines dedicated to Niutsuhime across the country, and I visited the head shrine for the first time in over a decade. It has a unique history in that it linked Shinto with Kukai's Buddhism, which is thought to be one of the reasons why it became a component part of a World Heritage Site. When I visited, there was a thin layer of snow only around the shrine, creating a solemn atmosphere.
