This shrine with beautiful roofing and architecture is popular for wedding photography. Located in the city centre, it is worth a visit if in the area.

This shrine is absolutely gorgeous. Lots of arts and history behind this shrine. There are many locals who come here to have their wedding pictures taken. It is located quite near to the city centre. Worth to take a look at it.
