I like to visit shrines. This Oyama Shrine has a long time of experience and very rarely gate. The gate looks like very European designed. It is rare. Could you try on the way from The Castle to Nagamachi -samurai resident?

This shrine has a European tinge to it thanks to Portuguese influence. It's not a must see in town, not going to blow your mind, but worth wandering through if in the area.
