  • More than 2000 years old pine trees. It was magnificent, but this is. In a short period of time is sufficient. However, it is recommended you have so famous.

  • It is so refreshing that we pray here for the first time shrine. Japan's second oldest camphor tree is naturally with trees, feel the history. At the shrine and are fine to pray people much or I was full of ozone, and a small river or waterfall. Inari sushi, so we visit. Soup with sweet gave a trendy coffee shop is small.

  • Sent next day I stayed at Atami Hot Springs Hotel minibus. I felt the atmosphere is different from the entrance. Calm and chic cafes and rest freely. By Mama: Guest Hotel minibus or due to having been energized by the camphor Fortune finished last by luck, I was waiting for the bus from Atami Station and go to Atami Station staff ride also. Camphor power thanks good luck for everything.

  • 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.
  • Nice but small one
  • Lovely small shrine.
