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.

  • Is the Shinto and Buddhism separation earlier was operated by temple shrine. Is a Shinto shrine was jointly operated by Tendai and Shingon is the story so far, it is very unusual and bad relations. Historically quite common. Before the Edo period, more than three times the precinct (Temple), in the heart of the Temple of the three is Izu shrine and enshrined not was is. Currently the temple is staying away from rest Izu shrine only Chinese Academy of. Is beside the main building of the shrine was originally, is elderly and elementary school is its location. After two unusual points, biography and Dragon Red Dragon and White Dragon is the Hall one water has gone out for both the Dragon's mouth. Another unusual thing that nokyo-sho character is thick and, though nokyo Temple-Sho is wrong. You may find it useful to use the bus from Atami Station access to the shrine. Immediately in front of the bus and the Shinto shrine visit to a shrine road. Followed by just the long, steep stairs. Stair steeper of two hills of Mount Takao in Hachiōji Causeway twice for me I feel. You can recommend also walk on foot along the sea from Atami Station weather permitting. Eliminated without hesitation because it is the base one way. Police station and walk 25 minutes 135 Highway along the coast in the direction of Yugawara, Izu shrine and carved stone because it left and walk up the steep slope. On the way to the right you will see elementary school. Torii appear and proceed. Izu shrine, hongu is at the top of the mountain and along the way have us in the middle. Round up and has hiking trails around. In addition, Museum (charges apply) is located next to the main hall, precious relics are on display. The collection is a small museum, but valuable and rare. Just showcased the authentic, not replica. There is kinda disappointing. There are more staff. After watching through detailed discussions begin. It is important that are asked about comments so seriously. Describes the place suitable for return under the sit. Since the move, such as wax moment mistake. The view from the square at the back is the best said the back of the Hall. Located on a hill overlooking Atami Ocean. Located hatsushima Island the right look, weather permitting. Chinese hospital is 5 minutes walk, foot. Might want to relax your feet slowly and I am tired of Atami beach can be seen from the foot. Legs-fuki is equipped for a washcloth.
