Winter Snow

From January to February, there are a few opportunities to see the shrine covered in a beautiful coat of snow. The amount of snow varies by year.

  

  

  

Spring Cherry Blossoms

For a brief time between late March and mid-April, cherry blossoms illustrate the coming of spring. The someiyoshino variety of cherry blossoms can be found in just inside the Grand Torii Gate.

  

  

  

Autumn Leaves

You can enjoy the lovely changing of the leaves from mid-November to early December.
