  • Saying that shrine is nothing more than a floating torii would be a very a simplification, it's actually a head shrine with a nice matsuri! But watching either the sunrise or sunset with a few drinks is probably the best to do ;)
  • The tori gate in Lake biwa is a nice sight, but the rest of the jinja is a bit dull (there is a nice stone slab/painting though).
  • I wanted to take pictures of the Torii floating on the Lake, came from Tokyo by car. Went to watch the scenery of the dawn, by waking up early in the morning at 4, but was just spectacular. The only spot you can enjoy the view of Torii floating on the Lake ❣

  • Torii gate floating in the Lake, so mysterious and my wife was delighted. I think that travelers may be interested on the shrine buildings can recommend visits to the shrine, shrine itself, many shrines is the main worship the entire building, surrounded around the opportunity is in no need shirahige shrine honden and haiden and surrounding ones but.

  • Torii gate floating in the Lake Biwa is very quaint. You can enjoy the atmosphere differently during the day and lit at night. Parked on the shrine to go up the stairs near the Torii gate and stairs can get to the front of the Lake, walk West River Road must cross. Please note that when traffic is heavy for.
