Ninoe JinjaShrine is a shrine standing along Furukawa Shinsui Koen Park. Seeing from the park, it looks very mysterious that the back yard of the shrine is covered with thick woods, but it looks very beautiful with the main hall of the shrine in the deep end of the approach with red lanterns and tall green pine trees while seeing from the main gate. There are many tall pine trees standing in the site and a 500 years-old giant zelkova tree standing in the back yard of it. They look excitingly beautiful under the blue sky.
Ninoe Jinja Shrine and Furukawa Shinsui Koen Park, Myoshoji Temple are very close, and they create a green belt like an oasis.
