A very special outing. Love for cyclists is felt here! Pay your respects and ride safe.

A mix of mostly new and some old as the majority of the complex was destroyed in the earthquake. Goushuine only available by the piece of paper - stupid COVID.

Actually, this is more of a construction site as we visited this place in May 2021. The original building collapsed and is covered by a big steel construction on which the shrine is printed on. Would only recommend to visit after the construction is done. Then it might be a site worth visiting. Parking is close to the site.

Very little foreigners come here after the destroy of the main shrine my the earthquake. The damaged parts has been removed and it is now under reconstruction. The shopping street is very quiet and no much tourists even the shops are opened. * God bless Aso 🙏🏾

The main shrine was destroyed by the recent earthquake and they are in the process of rebuilding it. Another interesting thing about this area, there are many spring and fountains that you can hunt them down individually. These springs are also located in the shopping district and there are many nice cafe and restaurants you can try. You can go to the visitor centre for more information.
