About 1km north of Futarasan-jinja close by the Shiraito Falls, is this serene, delightfully less crowded shrine that has a history stretching back to 820. The stone gate, called Undameshi-no-torii, dates back to 1696. Before entering, it's customary to try your luck tossing three stones through the small hole near the top.
