Stroll through the shrine's surrounding gardens, featuring ponds, bridges, and other smaller structures surrounded by Asian plum trees.

  • The Tenmangu shrine I liked very much, because he appeared so colourful and beautiful ornaments. Before going through a kind of Park, which is also nice. The flowering peach trees gave off a nice picture. Even though it was around noon, it had not very many people. It is possible when all shrines, are Japanese characters (are) to paint on a paper or buys a temple booklet and into doing this. An entry then costs 300 yen, the book between 1 '000 and 1' 200 yen. I think a special keepsake.
