Head deep into the forest and atop Mt. Mitsumine to find Mitsumine Shrine, often described as one of Japan's most beautiful mountain shrines. The serene sanctuary sits 1,102 m (3,615 ft) above sea level, with tall old cedar trees enveloping the surroundings. Find three beautifully decorated areas, which make up the holy place-- the historic, main, and remote worship halls.

  • After all the mitsumine shrine after it relaxes. Buy white charm released one day every month, I have my friend is buying in a car going up the mountain, come down just took 7 hours, and it was. Please note that after the trail is snow and freezing as normal tyres, available depending on the season. Walk from the parking lot to your environment, because it takes 15-20 minutes in my 30s...

  • Has three times visited the shrine on this day is that holiday and crowded buses. We recommend checking and congestion information in advance. This shrine is gay. It's probably in the old days was like any temple? Of the Chichibu mountains deep inside. It is many people settle down, very good shrine.

  • Give you power and worth to visit!
  • We crowded, morning crowded around 7 pm, but arrived at around 9 pm bus groups, etc.. Also it seems to jam. Dogs are also to worship together. You could take fantastic pictures, fog has cloudy day visited. Go so deep in the mountains on the car and the special service buses, there are apparently. (IC card can be used as is)

  • Unusual shrines that Wolf is God doing (guardian) Kanto three major power spot. Like the mysterious, unique sense of feel at the moment passed through the gate and up the stairs from the parking lot. On my way home I bought Ki charm. So out of the way, R140, trail from the dam is not two-way streets where attention is required. (Especially near the tunnel)

  • Shrine in the mountains because air is invigorating, the sacred tree is very powerful. Interesting decorative details of the shrine is gay, look at your environment around. But until I went to the shrine in the spit power before reaching the power spot is beaten in a brutal 3D curve guwannguwann turn left or right while climbing the mountain even though drinking sickness tablets prior to car sickness, was supposed to have. Not car sickness Constitution go 2 degrees, so bought a 500 Yen one amulet (he can return to the shrine) to commemorate, I went back.

  • The earlier, kumotori mountain trailhead as mitsumine shrine has already gone through. Not realizing that at that time, a famous tourist attraction. Find out the most popular in the trip Advisor, we traveled the Chichibu and visit again. 15:00 parking place, despite past traffic jams. Popular than expected. Has a shrine with colorful look at Chinese temples. Similar to Toshogu Shrine. Look good atmosphere by the stone, and none ever list of donor money. On the steps of the shrine prayer for business prosperity or commercial name array. I love shrine in any town, but this hand is weak. Ohyama afuri shrine is the same. Look into a symbol of the desire of the masses.
