"A Shinto shrine situated along Prefectural Route 212 in Kawakami, Yamato-cho, Saga City. Founded in 564, the shrine has been revered as the most important in what was Hizen Province and what is now Saga Prefecture since 1161. A stone on the shrine's ground's known as ""Konsei-san"" is said to bless worshippers with children.

This is very nice and quiet place to see nature and thinking about life.
Big park has both Buddhist and Shinto shrines.
I was there during golden autumn period and there is was no people. I enjoyed...

So, so peaceful and the location is lovely as it is next to the river and mountains. All the people we met there were so friendly and welcoming and we hope to return very soon.

川上渓ホテル龍登園の川向こうに鎮座している肥前国一宮です。今まで通り過ぎてばかりだったので、先日思い立って参拝。與止日女様に孫さん達の頑張りを見守って下さいねと祈願。社殿以外の主なみどころは川沿いの巨木、社殿前の夫婦杉、鳥居傍の手水舎。拝殿前の狛犬が2組なのはちょい珍。

          Away from the fast-paced cities of mainland Japan, Kyushu’s Saga prefecture offers quaint towns and cities known for their traditional crafts, particularly ceramics. Rich in kaolin (a type of clay), Saga became the homeland of Arita ware, a delicate, decorative porcelain that is now celebrated worldwide and can be discovered in the towns of Arita, Imari, and Karatsu.
