Izusan Jinja Shrine, Atami
(4.4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Number of stairs from the main meaning. Just described only the number of sections without explanation of the meaning of the number, sorry. From the main hall to motomiya one-way climbed less than 2-hour round trip is about 1 hour. A little uphill and rainy day would rain harder to get. Amulet is good snake design.

  • You come in here and go up the stairs from the gate in front of the shrine but finish with visits to the main shrine is not good! From entering from the side of the main hiking trails until the main shrine visit?! Even hiking trails, Petit climbers like walk around though because it is a little dangerous and slippery underfoot or on a rainy day, a sneaker and wear good walking shoes and enjoy!.

  • 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.
