A kind of Izorbo Shrine above the long steps. The vermilion shrine has the same color as the popular Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine in Kyoto. It is very beautiful under the blue sky! At 3 or 4 o'clock in the afternoon, it is the temple welcoming the light, which is the best time for shooting. Izorba Shrine is rumored to be a resting place built by the Emperor and Empress Dogo while bathing in hot springs. There are many calculation formulas on the walls of the shrine, which are related to the construction. Therefore, this shrine is called the "Three Hachimanzos in Japan" (the name of the shrine construction method) along with Ishikimizu Hachimangu Shrine in Kyoto and Usa Shrine in Oita. .
The Izorbo Shrine under the blue sky is so beautiful, it is not at all inferior to the Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine in Kyoto, but it is not as large as Fushimi Inari. I'm a little tired to go up to Izorbo Shrine, so the long series of steps make my legs feel a little weak. In the shrine, Emperor Nakaai and Empress Shen Gong were worshipped.
The little red on the long string of steps is Izorbo Shrine. There was still a little pant at the end of the 135-step stone ladder. When I looked up, I was completely amazed by the bright vermilion building. The sky was too blue, and the temple was too bright. The color match was perfect. Passing through the luxurious and splendid gatehouse, inside are pillars with gold leaf and carved door beams. Although the scale of the temple is small, it is extremely beautiful
Izorba Shrine is not far from Dogo Onsen, and you can visit it on the way from Dogo Onsen to Ishite Temple. The hillside up the mountain still looks very steep. Especially on rainy days, I really don’t want to climb. The sign at the door is very obvious. Although I can't read Japanese, I know I didn't find the wrong place. It will be a little closer across the road.
