The shrine is a Shinto shrine atop the Komagate hill. A steep climb up but a cable car is also available. The shrine has many benedictions but most people go to the entrance of the shrine at lake level which is the tall orange gate called Torii. It sticks out of the water and has a small deck and no real boats seems to come there
Long lines form from the road down as people wait seeing the antics of those whose turn has come.Its amazement to see how people jump, turn, pose etal to get some pictures!

Came here during the middle of January during a snow storm. While the weather did make it tricky to walk around the temple and the lake, the snow made the entire area beautiful and made for some amazing photos. A great cultural and photogenic experience.

Located in Lake Ashi. It was a nice walk around the area. There was a line to take a picture in front of the shrine, but you have to visit at the exact time of the day, otherwise the sun is behind you and it is difficult to get a nice/clear picture without you being a silhouette.

this serene lakeside shrine has everything - towering cedars, a beautiful torii gate on the shore of lake ashi, and a main shrine complex up a steep flight of stairs to make your pilgrimage worthwhile! there's usually a line to have a picture under the lakeside gate, but waiting is worthwhile and pleasant in the shade. don't be shy about exploring along the lakeshore after you get your photo. remember that this is a place of worship, so act accordingly while you're here.

A famous shrine with its enormous 'torii' (Red Wood) Gate set a few yards into the Ashi Lake.

Were it not overrun with 200 or more Locals and Visiting Tourists (all taking Selfies, and in pairs, then several Group Shots), we might have been able to savour the tranquil atmosphere, but it was, so we didn't. 25+ minutes long of a queue, when we only had an Hour, made it pointless.

We looked, read the signs, smiled, took the best Image we could manage and left.

We were there in the early afternoon - hopeless. This is a first thing or nothing Attraction.

The weather on this particular Day was grey overcast rainy and grim (shortly before Typhoon Hagibis hit), which reduced Visitor Numbers considerably !!

We went in early January so there was lots of people waiting in line to get a picture, glad we did wait because the photo is amazing. Gonna be one of the best travel photo. Many hot snacks store around. Cool place to hang out.

Due to Covid, the shrine gate in the water was roped off. However the rest of the shrine was open and provided enough space that people could social-distance. This is a great stop when visiting the Hakone area.

This is below a temple that is worth a brief visit (esp if someone in your party stays in line while you go up the hill).
It’s nice and on the tourist agenda but not a particularly pretty torii but it’s on the water’s edge and bright orange. Don’t confuse it for the main large ones over the street on each side of town. About a 10 min easy walk around the lake. Toilets avail at the temple.

There is usually a line to get a photo at this shrine, but it seems to move rather quickly and its worth the wait.

A torii is a traditional Japanese gate most commonly found at the entrance of or within a Shinto shrine, where it symbolically marks the transition from the mundane to the sacred.

The queue was long even half hour before sunset. By the time we got to out turn, the sun has gone down but we still managed to capture the essence of the beauty of this place. Truly memorable experience!
