Sadly, the weather was bad and I couldn’t walk all the way to the main shrine. Nevertheless, the scenery is very beautiful and the walk was very pleasant.

We were heading over the mountains by the back roads and took a small detour to come here. It is a beautiful shrine and very peaceful. There are quite a few steep stairs or a longer less steep path. Very peaceful. If you are driving...More

Believe me the view of the Japanese alps from near the shrine is a better religious experience than yet another shrine.

It's the largest shrine among these 5 shrines and at the most convenient location for sure. Perhaps it's too convenient, it's not as stunning as Okusha that one have to go through a long long way to test the faith. Yet it's still worth to...More

Very nice shrine surrounded by tall ceder trees. We visited in the midst of summer and it was refreshing to be surrounded by the shadows of the forest. We were lucky not to have too many people around and enjoyed the serenity of the place....More

This is the central shrine of a more spread out shrine complex known as Togakushi Shrine. This particular shrine is pretty nice, and is reached after long steep steps. Nice drawing drawing on the ceiling of the main building.

We went there early winter and there are practically no other visitors around, which makes it even more beautiful and very easy to appreciate the beauty and wonder of the shrine.

We went during winter, so okusha was not available by bus. Chusha has a small waterfall next to it, and an area that sells local charms and other religious goods. The trees that surround the temple look hundreds and thousands of years old, and are...More
