Gassan Shrine reviews
It is amazing to see this place on top of the mountain. How could they carried all these stuff here? Still active. You cannot take photo or videos here but can observe prayers. Move forward you will find some other facilities that you can take a break.
Visited this shrine during last summer. It's a small shrine and you have to pay some money to enter, but in exchange you'll be purified by Shinto ritual. The scenery from here is beautiful lush green.
