This shrine represents everything beautiful about the Japanese aesthetic. Simple, pure and inspiring. As uplifting as a cathedral, but tucked into a rock garden, surrounded by Japanese maples and a stream

Recommended if you combine it with a walk through the mountains and a visit to the famous tea shops in town.

The Shrine itself is small but the surrounding area is very nice.

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.
