“A small piece of History - but bring your translator :)”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

My wife and I got married here - my son had his 'name-giving' ceremony here - we visit here every new year for our annual blessing. The staff and priests are all very helpful and kind and made every event a special occasion for us.
It's scenic beauty is magnificent all year round - especially in autumn and during the cherry blossom festival.
For new year, there are very long cues to get into the main altar area (3-4 hours) - only letting off on the last day.
As everywhere else, be sure to have someone who can translate for you.

“Long approach path to Shrine”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

The Shrine has a long approach path that has row of trees. It has a beautiful view and atomosphere.
I visited in the middle of January, a lot of people were praying for new year's happiness.
