    It is very clean. Are all kept clean and Nice. Logo of the shrine is also fashionable and sophisticated feel. Seems to be the hotel's reception office. Please has solemn and sacred tree. It is overwhelmed. The trendy terrace and Cafe hotel is in the immediate vicinity, I was conscious of women's undeniable. Smartphone units are equipped with installation.

    Visit the family in the summer holidays. 11's long wait for parking in the back, parked in front wait for last. The 人集ri gate on the right-1300 year-old camphor and portrayed the main left-more than 2,000 year-old camphor's favorite. Heat stroke prevention in the mist or the left hand main office is fully air conditioned and comfortable. Not is unclear in one location is the dessert for a limited time.

    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.

    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.
