This shrine isn't as popular as some of the others in Sendai, which makes it a bit of a hidden gem. The climb up to the shrine can be quite strenuous as there are over 100 steps. It is worth it, for the shrine is close to a cliff below which flows the river, and across that is a panorama of the city. That's why, even though the shrine is not open at night, a lot of people climb just for the view of an illuminated Sendai. The grounds of the shrine are lit up at that time as well, making for a rather unusual atmosphere than you might normally experience in Japan. The only time in the year that the shrine is really popular is doing the DONTO Festival.
