(4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Try your luck with sticks and have your fortune read at  Mishima Taisha, the grandest Shinto temple in Izu, famous for its cherry blossoms. A flowering explosion of 200 cherry trees of 15 varieties makes the shrine a popular spot in the blooming season. Many people get married here, admiring a 1,200-year-old sweet olive tree, a symbol of longevity. A small museum in the shrine displays national treasures, such as a decorated lacquer wooden box, a 14th-century sword, and a heart sutra dating back to 1203. The shrine also has a small deer park and a pond with large carp, and sits 10 minutes walk from Mishima railway station. Our Mishima vacation trip planner makes visiting  Mishima Taisha and other Mishima attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Very beautiful gardens and it's kept very nice. If you are a sight seer they have some cool charms for sale during the day.
  • This place is much more than a shrine. It has a museum with national/ historical treasures, deer petting zoo, and gardens. The compound is large and is filled with many great picturesque views.
  • One of the most important Shinto shrine in Shizuoka Prefecture! Full of history and culture! Expect the Mishima Taisha Shrine Festival! Photography heaven! One of the greatest shinto shrines in Shizuoka Prefecture. Replete with history and culture! Look forward to the Mishima Taisha Festival! Photographers ' paradise!

  • 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.
