Very peaceful. No jostle of tourists. Quite a few local performing their daily worship/religious activities. Photography prohibited. Tip:1. On the left side just prior to the exit gate at the back, there is a musical hole with (apparently) water producing musical sounds. 2.

The Motoise Konojinaj Shrine is at the foot of the mountain that the chairlift ascends and is only steps away. It was a delightful surprise for us to come across and we wished we had known more about it. Definitely worth a visit.

If you have been to the most sacred Shinto Shrine, the Ise Grand Shrine in Mie Prefecture, you will probably appreciate the significance of this shrine a lot more. It is said to have once enshrined "Amaterasu" (the Sun Goddess) and a local deity, "Toyokehime", before moving to Ise. We came by car, and to park for the first 30... More

Just after arriving in the Fuchu pier by boat, or after walking along Amanohashidate all the way to the end from the Monju area, you will spot a grand-looking shrine in front of you. It’s the Moto Ise Kono Jinja Shrine (or the original Ise Shrine, Kono Jinja Shrine). As the name implies, it claims to be one of the... More

Not a lot to say about this shrine other that it was very interesting when all was explained by our guide. Again you need to have it explained to appreciate and understand it.
