Hodosan Jinja is straight up the hill from the station and through the giant white torii. Get there early in the morning to try to beat the crowds, but the first tour group arrives fairly early. The shrine has an interesting history, one that should...More

I visited this temple because this is one of the 3 Chichibu Shrines but it has no particular point of interest so I do not recommend that you go there to visit this place.

The Hodo San shrine at Nagatoro is located at a walking distance of about 15 minutes from the Nagatoro station on the Chichibu Railways. It is wonderfully located with lush green surroundings and at the base of mountain. The locality is picturesque and calm.

If you're going to the top of Hodosan to take in the blooming wintersweet and plum trees, by all means stop at this picturesque shrine, where you can buy a fortune in the shape of a miniature fan, along with seasonal local edibles.

Hodosan shrine's grounds can be walked around in 10 minutes or so, and the shrine and out-building, torii, etc. added nice architectural elements to combine with photos of the maple trees. The shrine building itself was ornately carved and painted, and it looks a lot...More
