Hard to explain what makes this place special. The shrine looks just a bit more elegant but it is the complete setting that lifts this sight above many similar ones. The garden is perfectly...

国の指定名勝の庭園を楽しみました。
建物の中に入って庭園を見るスタイルなので鑑賞式庭園かとおもったら、
サンダルが用意してあり回遊することができます。
建物の柱の間からみる額縁鑑賞も、庭に降りる回遊鑑賞も楽しめます。
池のほとりに枝垂がありましたが、
私が訪れたときには、ほぼちっていて、葉桜でした。

          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
