The red tori gate is a short walk from the third ferry boat stop we took on Lake Ashi. You can clearly see it as your boat comes in to dock. A short 10 minute walk should be enough to get you there. You can...More

Such a fabulous shrine, it is a bit smaller than some other shrines but it is beautiful. I particularly liked the arch that overlooks Lake Ashi. Quite a few steps to the top, but lots to see on the way!

Nice shrine - especially with the gate at the lake. Try to sneak in between two chinese group tours.

There were always a few people waiting to take photos here but we didn't have to wait very long. The walk down to the shrine is very relaxing and pretty.

A beautiful and peaceful spot with amazing scenery and plenty of places to stop to eat or drink. The lake views are amazing and the walk through the shrine and temple grounds are spectacular

This shrine was quiet and chill despite many tourists visiting (both local and overseas). It's interesting to see many art students sketching and drawing the sceneries surrounding the shrine too. But I guess most people are here to take the amazing picturesque torii gate and...More
