Beautiful shrine. Went on a date here, so I didn't spend as much time as I usually do reading about the history of the site. Definitely one of my top 5 favorite shrines in Japan of the 50 or so I've visited. Clean, cheap parking, beautiful architecture and scenery. Would go again.

A shrine with a small park right next to it.
The perfect place to cool down and chill drying the hot summer.

On a clear day can see Mt. Fuji from here. Also nice to walk around visit this shrine. It's also the final stop for local tour guide bus.
