This place is a sacred place for Japan. The spirits of the dead of Japanese solders from ww2 are deified here since the end of the war. They devoted themselves to their sweet homeland. Respect here and never be impolite. You all can come here! This is open for everyone and good park with greens! There are huge gate and Shrine. You would feel very sacred atmosphere! You can buy fortune stuffs here. And there are museum for Japanese ancestors who devoted themselves to Japan!!!

I went to this shrine in spring, so I can enjoy to see beautiful cherry blossom! And there is a some Japanese traditional show that anybody can see.
Also, it's able to draw an Omikuji here.

I came here to view the controversial shrine and also hoping to see sakura bloom. Unfortunately, trees were still budding. FYI, do not take pictures of the shrine from the centre while u r in the main hall. Take it from either the right or left. And remove your cap or hat if you are wearing one.

A great Experience. Truly a place to visit and endure the traditional culture. You can even watch traditional Japanese shows and a WW2 museum. There is a special prayer for about the 40 min dedicated to the Martyrs.
