A must see, the area is really interesting and immaculately kept. No charge for going in either. Great to find out about the traditions. Even the small shop was inexpensive.

We decided to visit this shrine because of its IT blessing. We thought it was amusing and I wanted to get a friend a souvenir for his tech. This turned out to be a much better/enjoyable visit than to the other tourist focused shrine. There...More
