  • One of the oldest shrines in eastern Japan. Tens of thousands of people visit this shrine during the first 3 days of the year. This shrine is a holy place to get rid of your bad luck and to invite good fortunes from all directions. You write your name and address, so that a shinto priest can read them and wish your good luck. After the purification process, you can also visit the sacred garden to admire the beautiful view with a cup of matcha tea.
