Izusan Jinja Shrine, Atami

(130 reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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. A visit to Izusan Jinja Shrine represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Atami trip builder to plot your vacation.

  • Wrapped up in the air and long stairs up is not glamorous and makes you feel relaxed. From the side of the Hall 40 minutes to climb steep and motomiya. As it rained lightly before and slipped some, but my husband and tried climbing alone and Smokey. Izu shrine this mountain climbing is that I felt. After a few years in health also was able to, I thought.

  • Pass through the gate and up the stairs on the left side overlooks the sea and Atami city. The feeling was so good and the sense of openness, runs good. Izu place is said originated in the very history of the shrine. I think goes further on we worshipped at the shrine hongu, so want to go: to the top.

  • Extended was breathtaking but exhausting 827 stairs climb to the top. Some dopey to want now. Itself does not have to climb over those from the road on the left of the stairs climb in the car on the parking lot. Lucky charm! Designed black and Red Dragon, I bought myself. Effects not likely.

  • It is famous as the source of the early 挙兵. Cut to climb beyond the 800 stage approach stairs from the coast, but then will wait a quiet environment and magnificent views! Nokyo-sho offers awarded between 9-16. Taxi from Atami Station is a 10 min 1000 yen.
