Beautiful Shrine in Hakone

A must visit when in Hakone. But too bad we are rushing for time. I wish I had more time to explore this beautiful Shrine. Must visit.

Temple is located in Hakone right next to Lake Ashi. Is right next to the famous Torii on Lake Ashi which is always popular with tourists. Head down here if you are in the area as it has great idyllic scenery.

We reached at the shrine in the evening. It was really nice and peaceful. Spent some time there and loved it.

Must see if you are doing a day trip to Hakone! Great photo opportunity if the weather cooperates. The walk there from the pirate ship pier is short and easy. Wheelchair access to the shrine if you need to avoid the steps.

I love visiting temples and shrines when in Japan and though it was raining, I headed out to see this one, too! After a short ferry ride (free with Hakone Free Pass!), I made the trek from near the ferry dock towards the shrine (you can see it across the lake). As you get closer, there are actually two ways...

Best way to see this is to include it in your circuit to Lake Ashi. Quaint temple but not as grand as those in Kyoto. Love the scenery around it.

We had a good walk on a rainy day, it felt so serene just walking around and listening to the rain. The shrine is surrounded by huge old trees..it felt so sacred being there at that particular moment.

Hakone Shrine brought to me the extreme holly feelings. The way that leading to the shrine is the surrounding cedar trees, it is so tall and so virgin. I have visited many shrines including the todaiji temples in Nara but this one brings the best view and feelings. Definitely will come again

I've visited Hakone Shrine several times and mostly enjoy the bright red Torii gate in the lake (good photo opportunity since you can stand down under it). The surrounding cedar trees are also amazingly tall and create a real sense of place as you walk up the many stairs to the top. At the top, you can say a prayer... More
