Sakurayama Shrine (櫻山神社)
I had a chance to pop into the Sakurayama Shrine which is located just in front of a food street! Also close to the Morioka Castle Ruins. What makes this shrine so special is its hidden gem in the back. There’s a little trail that takes you to a garden where a massive 6 metre high holy rock stands tall and mighty. It was still spring s the Sakura trees were still in bloom. My visit was very enjoyable, but at the same time I was super hungry and couldn’t wait to goto the restaurant I’ve been meaning to goto…Pairon.
