Futarasan Jinja, Nikko Reviews
We went here during the new year holidays to get their famous momiji. Highly recommended, just don’t forget to put more clothes during the winter.
Absolutely beautiful that these shrines and temples can be preserved for so long. Very quiet. 500円 - 大人 Well worth it.
Nice shrine but can get busy!
Nice shrine. The stone lanterns behind the shrine are lovely.
Good fall colors highlit the harmonious placement
