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.

  • Lovely shrine, although a little too commercialised, with a shop and instagram cutouts for taking pictures. Great to see the 2,000 year old tree and make a wish!  more »
  • Atmosphere was intense but power spot is found after make money on camphor spirit, I don't really feel the blessing was very disappointing. Unbecoming to a shrine of cafes where the corners of charm. Just say "more profitable" "make money", was a little tired.

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.
