  • Was coming up as soon as I got out of the car, I just went to try better to kinomiya station parked in the hotel and was told that if you very lucky a vacant parking lot and the rain and temperatures a little for what was felt faintly reverberate. More than anything else was overwhelmed by the presence within Kusunoki daiki. Radical leaves Yuki has the nose smells you just felt, if it rubs.

  • When I stayed at the Atami went to Izu shrine following. Kinomiya station, walk to the right and to the left hand tunnel. Visible red Torii pass there so you know immediately. From the train station was about 3 minutes. Postponed from the stair well next to the Green beautiful, come here! And first of all I thought. Until the blessings around the camphor camphor Hall left has overwhelming power, but one year it offers. It was a shrine like a Office innovative building. Because it was the side's Cafe coffee and むgikoがshi buns! The crust was chewy and delicious. The recommended to go to Atami.

  • Replaced or main office also is beautiful. And scent of the trees and walk into the Office, you can buy amulets, talismans and sand. I feel like obviously respectable camphor, power. It was trendy heart-shaped leaves. In the Office next door Cafe, for souvenirs, "Fu burn" 3 months 110 Yen I along with photographs of the camphor to friends, was pleased.

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.
  • Nice but small one
  • Lovely small shrine.
