Try reaching all the Shrines . すべての神社に到達しよう Remember this is still a wild forest so respect and beware of the animals in it . これはまだ野生の森であることを忘れないでください。

Visitors who want to see the shrine beautifully shrouded in show, please take heed as this may not be appropriate for young children during the colder months. If you're walking, the entrance to the trail is about 1Km (about 15mins walk or less) north from...More

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our hike from the lower Hokasha shrine , past the Chusa shrine up to upper Okusha Shrine. With the Autumn Colours of Koyo it was stunning. The Cryptomeria Tree lined path to the upper shrine is breathtaking. Easy day...More

This shrine is currently under renovation but to be honest, as per other reviews, it is about the journey to this shrine rather than the shrine itself. It's approx a 30-40minute walk from the bus stop and the last 20min is steps to the top...More

To be honest, the shrine on top of the hill is not that impressive. In fact, it's rather small and there are renovation works going on at the moment. So, don't expect too much. However, the way up to the shrine is quite lovely. We...More

Whilst the shire is just like any other shire, the walk into the shire from the carpark (approx 30 min walk one way) is the destination itself. The pathway is surrounded by extremely tall trees that are densely planted around. It is extremely quite and...More

The shrine itself is nothing special but combined with the walk/climb it is an interesting and rewarding experience. One passes through a path lined with gigantic cedar trees and some smaller shrines. The last part of the climb is doable but not easy. Good for...More

Too many of these around Nagano. How many do they need. This one quite a bus ride to get to and not cheap bus fare either.

Okusha locates deep in the forest, it takes you at least an hour to get there. It's an uphill path so it is quite demanding on one's physical condition and endurance. Despite the effort to pay, lots of tall trees were along the path. With...More

this is a must-go site if you love the peaceful, spiritual and historical Japan. There are few shrines in that area, with over hundreds years of trees surround you. what an amazing place!!! u better stay a night in the accommodation nearby!!
