Beautiful and quiet

An ancient shrine at the foot of Mount Tsukuba. Legend has it that the site of the shrine has over 3000 years of history. There’s a beautiful main hall and trails that go around the shrine.

A beautiful place

The shrine itself is beautiful and well maintained. Near the shrine you can take a train to the top of the mountain; a great way to cool off in the middle of summer.

Worth a visit

Quite a drive to get here but some breathtaking views.
Locals trying to get you to use their car parking was very confusing.
We used the public car park 500 yen. Just a short walk to the shrine. Pavements and steps are very uneven so take care.
We arrived the same time as a exercise class in tai chi was just about to start .
It's was fantastic to watch the drums and the music we've awesome. After they had finished they invited us to join them for drink and group photos. . Made to feel very special and one interesting in holistic / exercise would thoroughly enjoy this experience. They said it's every week but we could not find any reference to ongoing classes. We went Thursday lunch time .
The shrine is very much a tourist attraction you can drink and wash your hands from the fresh water spring . We wrote a prayer plaque and prayer note.
Nice to visit

A quiet and beautiful place to visit
Jul 2017 • Solo
It is quite a climb to get there. There is a main shrine and some smaller ones as well as a visitor's center. There also appear to be guides available although I am not sure if they offer a tour in English. The detailed artwork on the main shrine is beautiful and well worth seeing.

Quiet and peaceful place
Jul 2017 • Family
We visited on a Tue afternoon after we went up to Mount Tsukuba. The shrine was about to close and we were the only visitors. I felt peaceful there. The architecture is nice and the place is beautiful.

Beautiful Shrine
Jun 2017 • Solo
Visited in June 2017 after trying to visit Ōmidō Kannonji, temple #25 on the Bandō 33 Kannon pilgrimage (more on that in another review). Beautiful shrine. I've lived in Japan for 10 years and visited shrines all over the country. This is one of the most picturesque and beautiful. Many sub-shrines, too. Excellent English-language information pamphlet available upon request at the reception desk. Gateway to the summit of Mt Tsukuba (Tsukubasan). I wasn't even looking for this shrine, but when I came across it and decided to explore, I was quite satisfied that I did. Highly recommend!

Typical Shrine
Oct 2016 • Friends
Nothing special. Same as other Shrines. It is nice to go through to get to the Tsukuba Mountain Cable Car. Lots of stairs. Naritasan Temple was better and bigger.

Nice quite place
Mar 2016 • Couples
We visited the shrine when it was dusk . It was really nice place even at Night with the lights . there were no one expect for us . So I guess it's not popular with tourist or may it's the time . Local say it is a really old temple . This can be a side trip if you are going to mt Tsukuba . Go to the information centre in Tsukuba train station for more info to get there .

A lively place in New year
Jan 2016 • Couples
It is 25 km (North) away from Tsukuba TX Station. It is very nice for who love short hiking near Tokyo. We visited there in new year holidays. It is very nice place with crowd of people. We found many Japanese people praying there, which is a part of Japanese culture. A story teller was also there. Several restaurants and some hotels were offering a varieties food and services. We enjoyed the time.
