The Shrine was situated near the Dogo Onsen Station, by walking up a flight of stone stairway to the hill top. A small one and we didn't tour in details.

Together with Ishitegi Temple a visit to Isaniwa Shrine is well worth it, not more than 700 meters from Dogo Onsen. The approach to the shrine is more daunting but easily doable, just take your time and hug the center rail if you feel uneasy....More

It is quite close to Dogo Onsen, so don't need to hesitate a lot. You need to go up stairs, but after the stairs it looks very peaceful and you can see the scenery from the high viewpoint. Many tourists passed this Shrine, but you...More

Isaniwa Shrine is located on the top of a small hill, and you have to go up many steps to reach there. It is maybe a good exercise. As I visited, there was no other visitor. It is nice to walk around in a quiet...More

You need to walk up high which I was a bit scared. There's nothing much. Only 15 minuites to cover the whole area.

Isaniwa Shrine is ordinary shinto shrine with nice old wood carvings. In Matsuyama there are more interesting places like Dogo onsen, castle and Ishiteji temple. So if you visited all those sights and have some more time only than I recommend to visit Isaniwa.

Literally a must see for those doing the 88 temples. The temple itself is smaller and felt less cared for than some I have visited.

We were lucky enough to visit this Shrine just as a religious event was happening. Japanese people (many with their kids) were there to do a ritual (three times through a torii, bowing and clapping in the shrine, recieving some sort of grace, a piece...More

We approached the shrine from above so only had to walk down the steep uneven stone stairs. Be careful, they are treacherous. The temple is about corridors and angles - very interesting. The corridors have interesting old paintings many of which feature animals and calligraphy...More

This is a nice shrine near Dogo Onsen. It's worth a visit if you're in the area and have a few minutes to spare. The approach is up a very steep set of steps.
