What to Expect

In the very serene atmosphere, Yahiko Shrine is without a doubt, the most sacred shrine in Niigata. In its precinct, you will see the sumo rink, the Japanese archery arrow shooting range, the Shinto music and dancing stage and other ritual-related facilities. If you are lucky, you can see their performances on festive occasions. Not only visiting the shrine, but also you can enjoy the ropeway and Panorama Tower ride, footbath in the hot spring, eat local delicacies and see the natural beauty in each season. Yahiko shrine is located in Sado-Yahiko-Yoneyama Quasi National Park. Especially cherry blossoms in spring and maple leaves in fall are something you shouldn’t miss. The shrine area is very photogenic even in rain or snow.
