They have seven shrines together at the same place, and each shrines have their own powers. I thought it was so interesting. The location is also good, about twenty minute walk from Jr Shizuoka station. It was just a kind of hiking as it was...More

When we visited the shrine there were a number of religious activities ongoing, which made the visit more interesting. It is about an average size shrine with a long staircase leading to a little park area.

This Shrine is absolutely beautiful! I’ve been each time I’ve visited the area and it always amazes me. So calm and peaceful. Absolutely stunning buildings. I would recommend a visit if you are in the area.

Shizuoka Sengen Jinja Shrine is unique and we loved to visit there. A complex of three main architectural buildings. The shrine features an extensive collection of artifacts from the Tokugawa Shogunate that ruled Japan for 300 years during the Edo Period.
