Despite only being just over an hour away from Tokyo station, it is little known as a tourist destination. This is probably due to the out of the way location, a bus ride away from the remote Ushiku station in Ibaraki Prefecture. However, the spectacular sight of the towering deity is well worth the detour.

The addition of the fireworks and light show must have made an amazing sight for everyone in the area.
