  • It is a torii gate and a building of shiraki, and there is no thylate at all, but it is solemn and has a very good appearance. I was impressed to see the original God tree. I got power from the earth and God from the cedar trees on both sides of the three cedars and torii, and I have been charging energy. Because it was a national treasure shrine, it was a feeling that worshippers (foreigners) could not bear even on weekdays.

  • Great place to visit! It’s small but it’s unique
  • The serenity and beauty of the surrounding Sugi Tree gardens coupled with the constant sound of running water is absolutely out of this world. The stately Sugi trees surrounding the shrine is also a sight to behold. What is most interesting though is the architecture of the shrine is a Japanese invention, it goes back to approximately 1800 years ago before Buddhism came to Japan and it's Chinese form of architecture. This shrine predates the Ise Jinja in Mie ken and the structure is made entirely of Sugi trees unpainted and planed. The jinja is dedicated to the goddess Amaterasu and this is evident in the criss crossed timber with the edges cut horizontal to the ground. You can buy some carp food and feed the carp.
