Izusan Jinja Shrine, Atami

4.3
#3 of 17 in Historic Sites in Atami
A Shinto place of worship believed to have been built in the fifth century BCE, Izusan Jinja Shrine boasts several national treasures, such as a deep blue and gold-painted heart sutra, and many intricately executed statues of deities. Overlooking the entire town, the shrine features an exquisite vermilion-colored fountain with a red and a white dragon spewing water into it. Enno Ozuno, the father of mountaineering asceticism, and Kukai, the father of the Shingon School, reportedly trained here. Although the shrine can be reached by car, you can challenge yourself by climbing the stone stairs--837 of them--along a scenic path lined by cherry and yuzu trees.

  • Speaking with Minamoto no Yoritomo tsurugaoka hachimangu shrine and Mishima Taisha Shrine, Hakone shrine next to each other, this Izu shrine is famous. Overlooking Sagami Bay and up the stairs, I feel clear. Buses from the station so was good home overlooking the sea on foot. Train station take less than 30 minutes.

  • Has stopped in the parking lot under the stairs of my stairs from there was about 100, so your deletion request. However, it is thought was parking beside the shrine and go up to the top, so fails and. It was around noon on Saturday, but almost no visitors. Without a car a little bit inconvenient, so people won't do? I sat down on a stone that could power the sitting and you touching.

  • Atami-no-Yu-Yu bus ticket, I went to Izu shrine about 15 minutes from Atami Station. Stairs from the bus stop is very long very ¯ ~ I climbed there way next to the expressway also I noticed, was easier? I thought. Is a Shinto shrine is a small shrine of the old history.

  • Coca-Cola vending machine on top of the stairs for those who cannot survive without a drink. Nice nice point
  • From the approach of the R135: very long stair climbing. R135 road to the parking lot is not incidentally. From Atami Station towards Nanao bus: bus Nanao or shrine to the Izu Izu in from Atami Station (7 minutes) If you walk: walk signs, just up the hill from Atami Station toward left behind Nanao so that road single-mindedly. On the way downhill when his right hand and very happy. Probably. Just head towards the Nanao and Izu shrine's majestic left.
