The shrine is beautiful but you have to walk and climb to get to the top. The scenery makes it worth the visit. The station is really near the Shrine so you won't get lost.

This place is very unique with red/orange columns one-after another. As you can imagine, everyone wanted to stop and take picture; which caused a long tail of people traffic jam. Would suggest to go early to avoid human traffic.

I'd seen photos of this in travel magazines so pleased I could see them. A lot of gates,a lot of locals which surprised me, but plenty of room for everyone.The walk up to the top is to be attempted, up in the trees peaceful.

The millions of tori gates at the shrine was so stunning. It's very authentic. I felt like touching years of human history when I touched those tori gates. Strongly recommended.

No. It is free. It's a public park / shrine. The only fee is if you decide to do a wish or prayer.
