  • Mishima in ancient times is kokufu Kokubunji is placed as a center of Izu Province. Would you put the shrine nestled along the Tokaido Highway East pass there bandō the sacred Mt. Fuji to quell. You can fan like praying, I look at the map and Mt. Fuji a rich underground water springs, are coming together in this shrine. What appears to the eye as well as bringing the underground feel, is such a sacred shrine.

  • A very interesting place, getting into it, you feel completely immersed in Japanese culture and history. I visited him together with my colleagues in the evening on a weekday when there were very few people. But this has its own charm, can be leisurely all consider and feel this place without hassles. Interesting traditions, culture. Curiously, in Shinto temples committed rites associated with the first half of a person's life: birth, wedding, baptism, etc., but the rituals associated with the second half of life-takes place in Buddhist temples.

  • It is in very good and clean. Buildings on site are obviously old does not imply anything is not however, without feeling discomfort in the shapes, sizes and colors, also integrated in the surrounding streets. Had the thing was just a time of kabukichō pilgrimage, pray lots of parents and children. Parking at 200 yen/hour, was supposed to pay in the first hour. Crowding is a little, but I believe staff when an event is.

  • Mishima Taisha Shrine in here feels good. Torii of Mishima Taisha Shrine up jumping through hoops. Testimony if you're heading to the shrine through the side of the pond, but if bounced "carp" is then blessed by God. On the way home "haunting rock ' at attention. It's not a curse. Mishima croquette to eat while walking is exceptional, Mishima eel is delicious.
