Kid Friendly: No.

Friendly: No.
As for Miho Pine grove, it might be difficult to go closer to the shore on a wheelchair since it is sandy and getting to the main hall of Tosyogu shrine, this might also be difficult to get to the top, as there are many steps. However, this does not mean that you can not go.
I believe that it is very important that all my guests enjoy the tour, helping each other. So please do not worry!!! we can enjoy together!
