Beautiful shrine and lovely city. Other reviews pointed out that it is mostly for Japanese people, and we were the only non Japanese people there, also don't bring a stroller unless the wheels are large. The path to the shrine is paved with mini stones so a carrier is more practical. Parking was tough so be prepared for a lot of walking.

Great place to walk and view the culture. I heard that you cross the bridge across the river which means traveling from every day life into the holy land. The bridge is rebuilt every 20 years. I read that the shrine is the holiest in Japan and is from 2,000 yrs ago

After traveling the country and visiting the most notable shrines, this is my favorite. Surrounded by lush mountains and towering cedars, this shrine is well worth the visit. Very busy all seasons of the year with tourists and pilgrims, so best to avoid in January when it is too crowded to enjoy

One of the fundamental of Japan Shinto Shrines. The sacred mirror of the Emperor is safe here. The place is in a wonderful managed forest full of trees more then 500 years old or much more probably. The feeling of the Spirits is everywhere in the place. You feel completely in communication with the ancients and present Gods. I dully recommend the place. Start with the 2 rocks in the sea, Meotoiwa, then the Geku temple the this one.

This shinto-shrine is very spiritual place. Especially, I was impressed from huge trees.
