  • Good views of the town from the stairs. What will stop by whenever you go to the hot springs? Or climb the stairs up to the top of a very good spring before marrying.

  • Located a little outside the town suddenly, stairs of hell. And the climb is quite admirable shrines. Could I don't know with enough research, how the venerable shrine stone steps is quite old, enjoy the trip.

  • 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.
