Torii gates on the approach to Suwa Shinto Shrine. This was the foremost Shinto shrine of the area since ancient times, and Mt. Suwa, visible to the right (east), was named after it. The shrine compound was designated as a park in 1873, and a hot spring said to have been discovered by an Englishman opened nearby. The sign advertising "Needles, Hair Dressing, Hair Oil" indicates that this is a general store as well as a hair salon.
