Nestled in the Kawagoe region, an ancient shrine exudes tranquility within its expansive grounds. The serene ambiance, with its ample shade, fosters a sense of calmness, creating an ideal retreat from the bustling surroundings. During my visit, I was fortunate to experience a summer festival in the evening, casting a romantic aura over the shrine. However, being there alone amplified a sense of solitude despite the vibrant festivities. Remarkably, despite the season, the weather remained pleasantly cool, enhancing the overall experience. A tip for love-seekers: Early morning visits are recommended for those desiring a love talisman. At 7:00 a.m., Maiko distributes queue tickets for lucky stones. However, only 20 people receive them each day, making it essential to arrive early to secure this sought-after token of fortune." This revision aims to capture the tranquil essence of the shrine, the contrast of solitude amid festivity, and the advice for those seeking a lucky stone for love.

We were lucky that we went during the fall foliage season. The shrine is not large. but keep calm The journey is not difficult. You can take a bus to the front of the shrine.
