Izusan Jinja Shrine, Atami

4.3
#3 of 9 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.

  • I'd climbed in really light feeling worked up from the running water. This is hell's staircase. You got 600-near stairs going up to the entrance of the shrine and Temple go up nearly 300 stairs along the way, deficiency becomes. It is recommended that there is parking at the entrance of the shrine, so go up from there. How to have confidence in the strength should climb from the bottom. Nokyo-sho wrote in the temple at directly.

  • Using the bus from Atami, and get off at Izu shrine I worship. That will lead to substantial stone railing is not scary. The climb is going down at railing is not felt fear. I think old people who hurt do a. It was hard to walk in calf muscle pain the next day my leg pretty much came in force. Went down the stairs to "running water" as it is, but under was railing from the bus stop. Precinct is located on a hill, is good. There was sitting, and asks you to "big stone". Motomiya is also one could place an hour went next.

  • In the very historical hillside izusan shrine recently, marriage or power spot attracting seems. Not without good public transportation, visit the normal route and nearly 900 steps stairs and requires attention. It may be much the most on the day had come to excursion groups of elementary students, so if it's OK. There is parking if you climb steep in their own cars. We also recommend challenge to walk can be seen Cave Springs historic site driving water staircase off to the seaside, so not too bothered.

  • Parking space under the stairs is less parking because timing is bad and cannot be stopped. So far in the car next to the main staircase. Anyone who wants to learn.
