Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.
  • Water comes out from the old spring shrine and Mishima Taisha Shrine. You may know the feeling far walking route from JR Mishima Station, high transparency of small pond or river water, this is a special place. If in a car with shrine directly, if it does not have to be. Will place so nicely rooted in life should say the irrigation water not only in Japan. You can feel the breath of this shrine has been cherished since ancient times as well as across Mishima city has long followed as part of the "Mishima Taisha Shrine" pilgrimage"Mishima" even in this era. It only within the grounds, than of any other shrine. Good fellows who's abusive behavior is thrown in the water.

  • 真是如其名,超級多鴿子停在屋簷上,真是第一次看到那麼多鳥在神社裡,二月底可以有機會看到幾株櫻花開,但還不是最盛大的開滿,大社外頭天氣很好時也有機會看到富士山(partial)
