Torii In The Sky Is Must-See. A Scenic Shrine Becoming More & More Popular

Takaya Shrine is located at Inazumi Mountain which is over 400m above the sea level. The reason for the popularity is the world seen over the Torii in the sky! Seto Inland Sea and the townscape of Kan'onji are very moving scenery. A reward which comes after climbing up the mountain.◎Walk: 40 min from the parking lot of the foot of the mountain. The road is paved in the first half, but after that, it a mountain path. And there're steep steps at the end near the top. Car: you can access to the shrine by car from Fudo Waterfall.
