  • Most visitors pass by this shrine, labouring upwards (or downwards). The other places are free, here you have to pay a (modest) entry fee. But oh so worth it. Stunning art by Maruyama Okyo. For me....  more »

  • One of the best in Japan. The road that take you to the shrine is beautiful with many shops. You have to climb 785 steps + 583 if you want to go to the remote shrine. I can tell you that it is worthwhile. There is a beautiful view to the city from both shrines.
  • Truly incredible place.... I went right to the top (1386 steps) rather than just stopping at Kotohira-gu. It was a surreal moment when you get the top, endorphins pumping from the exercise, awesome view of the city and the best part, it's free!
