Religious Site (Shrine & Buddhist temple) of Iiyama Little Kyoto of Snow Country.
Iiyama is a castle town that was originally built around Iiyama castle. Also known as "Little Kyoto of Snow Country", the city also has over 20 temples, many of which have been built around a traditional promenade. There are many things to enjoy here, such as the Seven Lucky Gods Tour or stamp orienteering (collecting stamps from each temple for a prize). There are so many little discoveries just waiting to be found while wandering streets rich with old Japanese architecture. Other must see locations include Kosuge Village, which has beautiful rows of cedar trees leading up to the Shrine, and Kogen-in Temple, surrounded by a million blooming hydrangeas.
