This grand, spacious shrine has a serene atmosphere and enjoys a commanding view over the valley, best in spring and autumn for the seasonal colours. It is easiest to reach by car or taxi; the walk from the station, while only 25 minutes, follows a winding road up a steep incline with traffic and no footpaths. The shrine was first built in 1899 at the request of Emperor Meiji to honour Emperor Go-Daigo, who tried to overthrow the Kamakura Shogunate in 1333 and later passed away in Yoshino.
