大津市の中心からそう遠くなく、近江鉄道の駅から歩いて行けるところにあり、最初の鳥居からかなり歩いたところに社殿や本殿があります。門は色鮮やかですが、その分内部は歴史を感じられます。From the center of the city, not so distant shrine and shrine is located at walking distance from the railway station and pretty much walked away from the first gate. Gate is the color vivid, minute inside feels history.show original
