  • Camphor is great. I think it easy to pray even bad leg because it is less parking capacity, can be parked near Kusunoki. Consideration, etc. place Smartphone photo shoot. Heart made from leaves and a stylish Café is recommended.

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