|Hie Jinja Front Entrance|
|Hie Jinja Saki Casks|
|Shrine grounds with bamboo groves|
I tend to visit shrines first thing in the morning as one of my first stops as stores and museums don't open until later in the day and they are less crowded earlier in the morning. This is a very pretty shrine, there are well built, concrete outbuildings, and it is well maintained. The front entrance is up large wide stairs (remember the centre is for the gods to walk), with the Saki cask offering wall off to the side of the front entrance to the Shrine proper.
Main gate on the east side, back entrance on the east side (circle the hill if you have to)
