We found ourselves with a little extra time on our road trip so decided to visit this shrine. We just loved it. Not only is it stunningly beautiful but due to its remote location, it was very quiet. We loved the peace and tranquility. We had an ice-cream and fed the massive fish prior to heading to the far end of the lake after our visit for lunch and to hire boats to go out on the lake. On the way down the hillside, we came across one of Japan's musical roads - another bonus!

A Sublime Shrine on the Hillside of Mt. Akagi

Visiting this old shrine brought me something special in my mind. The site of the shrine is silent, tall trees give the visitors natural energy.
There are more than 300 Akagi Shrine in Japan, and this one is supposed as the original by some people. On the way to the shrine, you may see a lot of cherry trees named "Senbon Zakura"(Thousands of Cherry Trees). In Spring time, the visitors can enjoy watching cherry blossoms. Though it was the beginning of autumn time when I visited, I could imagine how the cherry would be in Spring.
Two deities are enshrined here; Toyokiirihiko-no-mikoto and Omunachi-no-mikoto.
I believe those who know the essence of Shinto and Japanese culture can feel the beauty of this Miyosawa Akagi Shrine.
