Come and take a walk around the sacred Kinomiya Shrine, a Shinto shrine nestled in an area of dense woodland. Dedicated to the Shinto god of fortune and luck, the shrine centers around a large camphor tree, believed to be more than 2000 years old. Pilgrims believe that one walk around the tree's 24 m (78 ft) round trunk will extend their life by one year, as well as aiding recovery from sickness. Pass around the sacred tree, and admire its natural majesty, which has inspired so many stories and positive beliefs.

  • It is a power spot shrine. Different from the air. Felt, to do something. It is a 2000-year-old camphor tree in the shrine. Visit this camphor tree, chanting to walk around this camphor tree. I would sure be nice. So, to pray with anyone who is considering a future with hope. Is the reason is, one filled with women like suites. During the fashionable Café within the grounds. For example, chiffon cake in astringent, astringent soft serve ice cream, astringent pudding, astringent ice cream with dumplings, and again to pray and eat. It's just very happy.

  • A small but peaceful place to walk around with wonderful trees. One set of tree roots is formed to resemble a mother holding a child and of course a phallus that was receiving lots of attention with selfies. The shop smells like fresh cut cedar and the staff was kind and happy. The Kinomiya Shrine was very active with ceremonies and families visiting. It's a easy access and welcome place to stop and take a break from the slow pace of driving along the coast. Take a moment to enjoy.
  • I had a nice stroll here. This shrine is small yet well maintained and modern. I am impressed with the selfie stands installed at significant spots, very thoughtful!
  • Very calm and peaceful place , just loved the entire stretch till the main shrine , very nicely done surrounding adding to the calmness of this place, lots of orange fishes adds to the Beauty of this place in a waterbody just besides the shrine staircase, overall a great place to be at. We went kids and trust me the kids had a great time watching the fishes
  • One of the loveliest shrines I know. The shrine is for a camphor tree that is over 2 thousand years old. The tree is beautiful and people say for everytime you walk around it you will add a year to your life. The entire shrine is vibrant and well kept. There are many photo opportunities. This shrine has shrine maidens who sometimes dance with fans in from of the tree. When I was there I also hear lots of beautiful traditional music being played by the shrine attendants. There are also some nice areas with orange tori gates that are great for pictures. At night the area around the tree was lit with lantetns and I half expected to see the spirits if the forest come out of hiding to enjoy the beauty of the scene. I would definitely add this to my trip while visiting Atami. There was also an impressive amount of information available in English.
  • Attractive, atmospheric place. Tends to be overcrowded on weekends.

Where to stay in Atami

The fairly modestly sized urban area of Atami boasts a number of places to stay, which is fitting for this holiday resort town. The most built-up area around the harbor has lots of modern hotels and more established guesthouses. Many focus on comfort and luxury, with traditional onsens at most of the places. Shoestring travelers will find some budget-friendly options without spa facilities--you can always pop into one of the accommodations with an onsen if the mood strikes.
