Where past and present meet... A beautiful shinto shrine in the heart of Sannomiya's busiest spot. A very nice place to take a walk.

Beautiful shrine - look through the doorways to the detail, in the middle of the city. Great walkway up to the shrine - pass through the tori gates. Enjoy the peace & tranquility.
