  • Is a Shinto shrine Torii in the Lake Biwa. History is out of date by Toyotomi Hideyori is now building is built. Lady Torii with a spectacular view can be seen early in the morning on a sunny day.

  • Shirahige Jinja road, across from the gate. Because there is a considerable traffic but you know Word of mouth other people so I was kinda scared when crossing the road. Even before it becomes dark from the Sun is sinking rapidly changing landscape is very beautiful.

  • Go to the Fushimi Inari Shrine on new year's day and headed for the shrine. Parked near the gate came to note one-by-one they say would take a NAP if you move nagging about the police, had ignored. Went to the gate, parked some distance had no choice but to walk. Shrine parking without too much, you don't want to stop. Release near a shop nearby? But had I parked on messing about. Unfortunately the weather was bad the Sunrise 見eremasenn. It's just that Nice shrine!

  • 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.
