We found this little shrine by accident and are so glad we did. A great place to take a break--love the atmosphere, and strongly recommend it to anyone who enjoys visiting shrines.

This is a nice walk from the bus stop to the shrine. Enjoyed a good walk up the long staircase to the shrine and enjoyed the nature of beauty.

The temple was built by Date Masamune. It's a little bit far from the other touristic places. If you have time you can go, but don't expect a lot, it's seems like any other temple.

The shrine is most busy during New year's eve (midnight) and January 1st. But I would suggest going on Jan. 14 to see many youth and company employees run around halfnaked despite the cold. There are many food stalls everywhere too. It's a must see...More
