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.

  • In the middle of the 837 steps road, State Highway and from the stairs but not so tight. Not confident, so parking is available at the top can be reached by car up to the top. It is those who are confident also go up the 837 steps up to the top from near the coast of fun. Local elderly people every day to climb a hill that well either prior to installation. Urban young people, are losing. Do not try to climb. Interesting views. I'm running Shinkansen line and Tokaido line beneath this stairs. Be quiet when running under the Shinkansen is noticeable at all. The visit this shrine, Yoritomo's likely won the battle, it is said power spot. Do you want power spots, so there are a number of shrines in Izu has said the power spot is. With, of course, are about the future. From here the God is a God of marriage. God Please bless you so.

  • After a typhoon the morning checking out where to stay near the kids put baby stroller and walked. Pull the hands of stone I would put the stroller at the entrance to the parking lot, 100-1-year-old the hug, while hard. And goes on a stroller so was a little worried about the shrine so okay would be brought only valuable thoughts. Every time I come to Atami had repeatedly been spent time believes hearts are washed like a sacred air, time has stopped. Excellent views of the sea far away from the ground, sea and train the sparkly. Bus from Atami was like 3 books per hour during the day. Interval is constant, it seems, so I think to use the bus in front of the family always go check timetable.

  • I worship at the cherry blossom season. It was long staircase under the parking lot was already full to wander around, sometimes (laughs) at the parking lot until your next would fit up the stairs and be fun to visit. Overlooking Sagami Bay, the view is best.

  • Coca-Cola vending machine on top of the stairs for those who cannot survive without a drink. Nice nice point
  • You have not written because someone else I wrote. Who did take more than 1 hour each way to go! Way to motomiya and hiking trails with the asceticism monk course (referred to) in the way of the original, which could pass for both the. Are further recommended to hiking trails is asceticism monk course and return. Need shoes and both barely paved road, so. Pumps or heels is out of the question, but you do not need a climbing Mountain shoes. On the way of asceticism monk course further further typically stair stairs twice and is quite Kitui. It's also a slippery rain overnight, so plan to go should. But it is raining on the day after he purifies the air have to be honest, hard to climb muscle pain was the day after. Then, find the main shrine was hard. Along the way, there are Inari Fushimi Inari Shrine, hongu further that the stairs also climbed ahead. Signs are blown because it was a windy day, temashita motomiya-looking for games along the way. It was so funny. Izusan Shrine at the foot of the mountain goes cold I made a solemn feeling, but feels very pleasant flows at the foot of motomiya and motomiya shrine, tired, poor I was happy, with cheering for me like. Back is fine, which was the case back. Such words, thank you very much, and in many ways comes naturally and shrine.

  • This Hall is unusual and is a red dragon. Seems to come from izusan bottom in the red and White Dragon lore. As I had stamina and time to pray in the main shrine is the main plot was abandoned.

It is a great blessing and Bali!
