Yoshino Shrine reviews
Lovely place. No one else there on the morning I visited. Lovely walk down a broad path through maple trees. This place must be spectacular in autumn when the leaves turn. more »
It is a really wonderful place
Is a Shinto shrine in a solemn atmosphere. No glitz, just standing in solemn feelings.
