Went here with friends off a cruise ship in April 2013.Travelled from the port area on one of the regular streetcars (line 5)and just went along to see what this was like. For 120yen it was a cheap fixed fare on the tram then got off to walk up the many steps to the shrine. This is the site of the one of Japan’s three most important festivals, the “Kunchi,” this famous Shinto shrine overlooks the city it is frequented by people seeking special blessings and favors.Once at the top you can enjoy a stunning panoramic views of the city. It is a quiet sanctuary surrounded by greenery.
Our friend was partially disabled so as I started to push him up the steps a couple of local students showed us the way to the top without steps. It was still a climb but well worth the visit. Wonderful shrines, monks, temples all hidden in an area of woodland away up the hil. A small zoo can be found nearby, ornamental ponds, and the various shrines where you can cleanse yourself ritually and bless your money to bring wealth and prosperity.I would not recommend it for full sized wheelchairs as the hill is very steep and you need a strong person to push you up.If you want a splendid view and some peace and quiet this is the place to visit.
