It’s a small shrine, but you may feel very relaxed! I visited some times, and I recommend the visit at the festival called “Mayo-ken Taisai.” That’s nice. more »
Quiet shrine, not flamboyant like tokyo's shrine but Local visitors make it worth to come. Many parent bring their kids to visit and I saw boys and girls enjoy a lot. Good place to lighten your coin bag-- I mean prey for yourself& family . Refresh and touching , for me.
Like the calm and peaceful vibe around. Great for tourists in Chiba
