The entrance to the Shrine is simple yet with the Shrine built on the ruins of Omura Castle it has a strong historical connection . Also, there is something about walking through many brightly coloured red torii (gate entrances) that puts you in a trance like state. For me there is something magical, as if I have stepped back in time to the 17th or 18th century.
Because Omura Shrine Park Nagasaki is built on the ruins of Omura Castle the walking paths are numerous and extensive. I could walk for hours and hours and still not be able to locate every area of the park. At certain times of the year Omura Park Shrine is inundated with tourists and visitors, the Spring Cherry Blossoms and June Irises are not to be missed.
Well worth a look!
