  • Very special shrine, strongly recommend to check if you like unusual places or interested in Japanese culture.
  • Unique shrine with hundreds of small dolls.
  • Very creepy with all the dolls! It's free, so if you're nearby just walk around it for a little while.

  • Contains so many various dolls. Across the country it is coming as a votive. And so goes the prayer after the disposal also is a.
