I went here October 2014. You could either climb up or have a cable car to bring you up the shrine. I decided to climb up during the solo trip.

Take a bus bound for 'Nihondaira' mountain; from the top of the mountain take a cable car across to Kunozan Toshogu Shrine. This is the original shrine built to enshrine 'Ieasu Tokugawa', before his remains were moved to their current place in 'NIKKO' which is a super-sized copy of the original Kunozan Shrine. Go on Saturdays and Sundays spring and... More

Didn't get a view of Mt Fuji the day we were there, but the Shrine and Museum are an enjoyable stop at the end of the Nihondiara Ropeway (It is a cable tram...don't worry). Be ready for some steps to navigate to see the shrine. And you can walk down to street level if you dare...only 1159 steps. The monks... More

Kunozan Toshogu Shrine is located at the top of Kunozan, a small mountain where you will need to climb 1,200 steps up the stone stairs. Please wear comfy footwear as the steps are rocky and uneven. I was surprised that it was not as tiring as I thought to climb the thousand over stairs. If you really cannot climb stairs,... More

This shrine is unique in the location. It is on the mountain. Before the Rope Way was constructed, people had to go on 1159 steps. The mountain is faced to Pacific Ocean. In winter we can see beautiful view of Fuji mountain with the sea in front. It was a pity that I went there in summer. I could not... More

This is a smaller version of the shrine in Nikko. It was built first and was the original shrine/temple for TOKUGAWA Ieyasu. It is very similar to Nikko but on a slightly smaller scale though I think the setting is more dramatic overlooking the Pacific. Very easy to get there by bus from Shizuoka station. It is a 35 minute... More
