    The scene is serene, beautiful and above all it is not infested with swarms of tourists coarse and vulgar. (Up to 800 years old) trees are stately and highlights the architectural beauty of the sanctuary that protects the founding gods Izanami and Izanagi.

    Oku-Chichibu shrine to people every month, and Mao Asada from my sister's got to care about people, strong-willed and well-known managers in that shrine recommended! Help when I feel weak strong God, so it is better not lose when I go. Prime mountain shrine, a short walk to wolves visit guardian is just good in the fresh air. Who wanted to look better because it gets really crowded in the morning to go Dragon-like raised floors are also sacred power that is quite so let take feel bad!

    We visited in cycling. Sai Kai road 14 km uphill from the junction to the Chichibu planes. Along the way, turn left onto Lake Chichibu (futase Dam) because it is in the square in front of the intersection has a vending machine (the last supply point) Kanto power spot shrine located at the top as well as a private car and bus runs tourist buses, so care is required. Half the road was relatively clean. Also remember grating cross the road often have to pass though. Foliage season could downhill run from taking a bath can be day-trippers in Nikko cloud Pavilion in the temple grounds

Where to stay in Chichibu

Known as something of a resort town, Chichibu offers a large set of accommodations for a city of its size. In keeping with the town's traditional rural sensibility, the majority of the accommodations are ryokans with pleasant grounds, immaculate interiors, and, if you're lucky, a traditional onsen on site. Many make it just a day trip to Chichibu, however, traveling from Tokyo in under two hours by car or train.
