Togakushi Shrine Okusha, Nagano

4.5
Head up the foot of the mountain to find a number of sacred places when exploring Togakushi Shrine Okusha. Visit the five separate Shinto shrines in three different shrine areas--known as the lower, middle, and upper--taking the time to walk between each of them, absorbing the relaxing atmosphere of the woodland, and learning about the stories behind the shrines as you go. With each of the three shrine areas located about 2 km (1.2 mi) apart, the walk between them can be tough, but richly rewarding for those able and willing. Plan my trip to Nagano with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • Beautiful cedar trees become that way from the parking lot to the distance, but the way it's one word. Mountain road is tough, but healed in the silence of nature. Prize for well visits and come back. I would be satisfied both body and soul.

  • Walking from the inside was blocked with snow. But if you walk the road you can go. Something easy to go by car. Stop in front of the shrine. This time of year as fewer people, could afford. The snow will snow Wow, beaten with one road is a relatively easy walk. When just the pass or overtake DarkOrbit plunged. Much on the ankle. Boots were the best for me. After the gate in the middle of Cedars. Is hiking towards the end and gradually uphill from here past the gate. It was able, Gates managed to stooping, and buried in the snow to arrive and. And walk not trail riding steep on the way back, so this was safe. Go 40 minutes, return was about 25 minutes. I had mysterious and purify the mind. It is very good. This time, but who at least might recommend and not. I was just snowing also work, so on a sunny day.

  • A very tranquile hiking experience. Takes about 35-40 min from the parking lot/bus stop. A gentle incline up until the last 10 % of the walk where it gets a little bit more challenging. Hiking shoes are a big + due to the rocks and gravel. Beautiful pine and cedar trees all along the journey.
  • Legend says Mt Togakushi standing behind this shrine, the last of 5 Togakushi Shrines, was thrown all the way from Kyushu to here. The powerful one who did it is Amenotajikarao-no-mikoto, the main deity of this shrine. People in Japan have long redarded this place as the holy and powerful. When you visit here, you will understand why this is a part of the very old legend.
  • A peaceful place that totally different from popular tourist spot. Really worth going.
  • Past visits. By 2015, 6, 28, ☀ Sunshine 2016, 6, 26, ☀ Sunshine Suginami tree approach is the 💪 power spot. Stroke deep and straight avenues, high/low difference between an open zone where guests can relax. Stress-head are stabilized is converted to alpha waves relaxation! (👍 a healthy and good) ✨ ✨ approach is very uplifting. Togakushi is the object of worship (sacred mountains) or not? Why the early summer in the morning is recommended. ◎ Heaven Qi, • land care, • mountain there, Sando left the clean streams flow through (if climbing...)
