When I visited Ono Castle in Fukui, I had to stop at many places before reaching the castle, because there were so many things to see! Yanagino Yashiro Shrine was one of the things that hindered me from going straight to the castle. This shrine is located at the trailhead to reach the castle. The sun was setting and I had to hurry, but the moment I saw the graceful main hall silently standing in deep woods, I fell in love with it. I forgot why I came here (to see the castle!), and kept taking photos. Although I couldn't capture the beauty of it, I can assure you, it's truly beautiful, especially in the dark. Don't miss it if you ever come to Ono Castle!
