The main building is bigger and more beautiful than I’ve expected. It will be appreciated if there are more toilets there.

A Buddhist temple and Shinto shrine on the same ground. It's very beautiful in April. Some very big old Sakura trees there.

Best temple I’ve found in the area. Large enough to warrant a good walk around and some great features.
