As all of temples in the complex, this one is also beautiful. As the entry is included in the common ticket price, you should visit it, at least for a while. It's really fantastic!

There is nothing really wrong with Futarasan, it is just not worth going to if you go to Toshogu. Even Toshogu is hardly worth going to but it is still the best of the shrines. One is enough though.

See my review of Nikko for the commentary. The shrine includes the elegant shinkyo sacred bridge, which is arrived at on the way to the main temple and shine sites. Highest marks for cultural preservation. An essential visit.

Not much to this place, as mentioned. It's included in the combined ticket so may as well check it out, but if time is tight give it a skip. It's dedicated to love and romance, so if you want to write your wishes onto a wooden prayer board you can do that here.

At least compared to its neighbors, Tosho-gu and Taiyuin-byo. It seems to be dedicated to love and was a peaceful interlude after Tosho-gu.

Part of the Nikko World Heritage Site and included on the same ticket. There is a handy map on the ticket which shows a route linking all the main temples. This middle one could easily be missed, it lies between Toshogu Shrine and Taiyuin Shrine. You enter through a large torii gate and the whole place is on the level,... More

Located next to Nikko Toshogu Shrine, Futarasan Shrine is an immaculately kept Shinto shrine. The stroll along the path is very peaceful, the architecture is stunning. The path leading to Futarasan is an attraction in itself, lined with many stone lanterns. I was told that this path is one of Japan's "power spots" as it interconnects 2 of Japan's most... More

This is included on the combination pass, so is worth a visit. It's quite small, with a number of small shrines vaguely themed with food. Children seemed to like it for things to pull, but it only merits a fairly brief visit.

We visited here as part of our combination pass. The majority of the other temples/shrines you were able to walk around practically all of the complex and pay for additional/special areas. For us it appeared that you just walked into this Shrine and whether you wanted to go left or right you had to pay extra, which we found a... More
