  • Hydrangea heaven! Through these gates you have to hunch down to get in. The best time to visit this temple is in the summer for me! The hydrangea are mind blowing. Very rudimentary during off season.
  • A clean and tidy traditional small temple without special attraction. No photo is allowed within the premises.
  • Nice small shrine with beautiful flowers. Please be noted that no photos allowed inside the shrine
