Togakushi Shrine Okusha, Nagano

(4.7/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The shrine and approach to walk slowly and almost half an hour to appear. Feel quiet and peaceful mind washing it feels. On the way back to Axon scattered near the pond as well. It's what I love. And the four seasons can be enjoyed.

  • We went there with a lot of snow, the first part was very beautiful but already took us twice the normal time, as on some part we would get snow till our knees! Then when it starts to go up, it was al...  more »
  • Indeed, the winter months of December less tourists. Thanks, could travel slowly. Walk where he wanted, but it freezes but not a so high in the snow, difficult to walk back, took about an hour.  Cedar trees to the inner shrine is JR propaganda as I had no leeway for good taste, but it is also hard to walk to enjoy the quaint. Better aiming when not frozen snow when you want to come here. But the Alps was covered with snow from the parking lot was spectacular.

  • People coming back from the shrine is happily back was impressive. Sense of accomplishment and arrive back, was in the middle of cleaning.  Everyone is healthy since coming back to power on the way back. Karita's heaven tejikarao lives (candy tairyōbata AX only), that God came to when becoming a hidden cave you Amaterasu with the divine power of Muso iwato of heaven open.

  • The parking lot was narrow. Don't suck in the middle of April. Still walking even snow. So go back to the snow. This snow is muddy. You must properly wear sneakers. Is a long way to go, or overwhelming in a large tree, watching the scenery and get that out. You do not feel that the uphill.

  • Big cedar trees to moss-covered shrines. It is a gentle hike. Gotta do spring and autumn (^ ^)

  • Parking lot is full, I went from the Botanical Garden parking lot. From there, in about 20 minutes. Along the way, enjoyed the chirping of birds. Slippery road was muddy after rain some people have come in sandals is easy. Here doesn't agree with my power spot and that is what does not feel anything.

  • Way to the inner shrine is and Nori is surprisingly long, cedar and MOSS green rocks and nature filled with the way feels short. Depending on the season and time the weather is very different, very pretty.
