  • Red Torii in nature with its 123 this is very beautiful. It was magnificent Japan Sea seen from far. You could feel the harshness of the Japan Sea in the fukiage Dragon. Donation has been installed on the gate, so they should not be. This donation is a donation in Japan difficult said. But, said enters this donation and make a wish come true. Many people thought was so missing my donation-throwing donation to the desire so. It was hard because I visited the shrine on new year's car to a halt.

  • In a one-day bus tour visited. It is the American CNN news, 0/2015 was chosen in Japan most beautiful place 31 election, so I wanted to try again. Is certainly beautiful red Torii and the blue sea. I think foreigners like Japan's image. But it honestly and say so. Offertory box is quite high and wishes come true! I was given up to throw from the beginning.

  • It is very cold but it was good to go. The people to throw coins into Offertory box is located is said to be difficult in Japan first, and Torii. I also throw more than 10 times, I like! It was a red Torii Gate were the Japan Sea from there, great scenery.

  • Voted by CNN as one of Japan 34 most beautiful place and I think its true! Truly amazing especially with the ocean as the backdrop. Parking space is limited and the road leading to the place is quite narrow so do drive carefully.
  • The scenery was beautiful. Recommend to come by car or taxi. I had my wedding photos taken here!! It's also listed on CNN as one of the most pretty places. While you are here, walk up the steps to the large gate. There is a coin box hanging at the TOP of the gate. Try tossing your coin into the box! It's one of the highest in Japan.
  • Great shrine, pretty off the beaten path but worth it. Spent about an hour, taxi from station was 2310 yen one way. Amazing views and a really cool place!
  • I have visited many kind of this place in Japan like Fushimi Inari Taisya in Kyoto, but the combination between tori(gate) and sea make this place very special for me.
  • I went here on 7 may 17. The place has best viewing spot to the see. As it boasted on the information board in front of the shrine. If there is a room for improvement, it is the transportation. There is no cheap, or better yet, free, transportation from nearest station. I saw from the internet, the nearest station is nagato-furuichi station. but the option after that is walking or taxi. Using taxi cost you around 2000 yen. with the potential of being the tourist spot in the area, a free shuttle bus would be good. And I hope this place also recognized by the Yamaguchi prefecture, because when I call the "Yamaguchi Call Center" (the sticker posted everywhere on the nearest bus stop to the tourist object), for direction from tsunoshima bridge to this place, the english support staff seemed not know about this place.
