Really lovely temple set in a small forest. All you hear is nature. Hardly any tourists here too, so you can enjoy this place in peace.

Oldest Shinto shrine has magic sand to help purify your home. It's surrounded by a beautiful natural scene, and it is nearby to byoudoin and the genji museum (which has an interesting puppet surprise). Thumbs up.

This is the hidden world heritage. Not crowded at all, but definately one of the best shrine. They are the oldest shrine structure in Japan. Their structure is really beauriful.
