It is a wonderful place with a very atmospheric and sacred atmosphere. The temple grounds are large, so there is a fair amount of walking, but the approach to the temple is shaded by trees and relatively cool, so you can visit the temple without using much energy.

The shrine is covered with a carpet of moss, giving it a different atmosphere from other temples and shrines. As you walk along the approach to the shrine, you will feel as if you are in another world because of the silence and the large cedars around the shrine.

Not an artificial beauty, but an ancient cedar forest and moss-covered grounds, I can say that this is the best shrine or temple I have ever visited!
