The shrine precincts are viewed from in front of the Shinyosha. Karamon is on the left. Kitodan (Goma-do) is in the centre back. The building on the right, Kaguraden, is the site of "kagura" (divine dances) by young women. The famous "Nemurineko" (sleeping cat) carving can be seen at the entrance of the corridor between Kitoden and Kaguraden. Behind the corridor is the approach (stairway) to the inner shrine.
