Niutsuhime Shrine reviews
This is the obligatory stop for the travels up the Mt Koya. You pray and appease the local mountain deity. There are old cedar trees, and of course the bridge. The temple design is regular shinto. more »
Despite its relative remoteness definitely wirth a visit. Great landscape settings. The old bridge is actually open to the public and has some wooden pieces attached to help visitors retain their... more »
It is a very attractive shrine without the world heritage. Ise Grand Shrine also cherishes Kongoji Temple, which protects the demon gate, and "If you come to Ise, run the morning bear, and go to the morning bear, you will visit the kata-jin", but this is also a shrine that has a deep relationship with Koyasan. It is understandable if you understand the history, but I think that the place where different religions coexist is very important culturally. By the way, there are a lot of tourists, so it's a crazy story to go and "show me around" all of a sudden. Please make a reservation in advance or at least check before you go, including prayers.
It is a beautiful shrine hall of Muromachi period special in the village village. It was a shrine that I was not able to crawl without thinking that it was good to be able to crawl though it was allowed to crawl in Ichinomiya tour. Muromachi period and the chance, Yoshino's Mizuhiro Shrine is also a place. It is a valuable architecture. I don't think it's necessary to explain, but Kobo Daishi is a mikoshi that cut the honor before koyasan kaizan. It is enshrined in the ground behind it in Kongoji Temple.
