  • Even without physical strength was hesitant to climb the long stairs and slowly if okay, the. Color is a beautiful shrine. When I just went and made wedding, nice quiet atmosphere.

  • A shrine there. Seen and there was no one in the rain, but rather many. Characteristic boils down to the stairs. Exceptional scenery, climbed for the first time.

  • Vermilion main shrine was very beautiful! Is the front stairs are quite hard. Get up the rest in the middle and a rose at once because it was so. Not out of breath. Is thought nokyo-sho theater after the last phone, but self-assessment. Because I had heard only the stamp and was abandoned.

  • Nice little temple, very photogenic.
  • Beautiful
  • 百來階的樓梯不算累,但上面景色優美絕對值得,神社內部陳列很多藝術品也值得細細品味。
  • Stairs are hard. What is steep and a decent no handrail. Lightly to stop by the heel or in the Act of suicide.

  • A fine staircase so caution is required. But as a result, good views. Rather than write the nokyo-Sho, on paper.
