Places of worship in Mito: Tokiwa Jinja

You could call it the main shrine of Mito. Tokiwa Jinja attracts a lot of visitors during the plum festival which started on the 20th February and lasts until the end of March. It’s also the place where we went for the New Year’s celebration and where the plum wine festival will be held in a few days.
It is a mid sized shrine, but it is the biggest one in Mito. I think this is the reason, why it attracts so many visitors. It is also confinement located right next to Kairakuen. The stairs go down until they reach the train station. Or you can look at it the other way: you can walk up to the shrine from the train. The train station is, however, only operational during the festivities in Kairakuen.
