Togakushi Shrine Okusha, Nagano

4.6
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.

    Togakushi Shrine consists of a shrine, socialising and treasure light, Kuzuryu Dragon and fire, his son, 5. I don't think you only a configuration, just one each, separate, reviews page. Reluctantly, we used the back page. Here was built 2000 years? Said... so I think cannot be verified in 2000 and said, in which another mythical world, even if it is said that 3,000 years the survey I'm. win the world. But I understand but here is great. Don't draw yourself here is featuring Fortune tells us that age just get pulled to the priest, and the fortune to take home is common practice. Environment is quite inconvenient access, freedom, down about an hour by bus from Nagano even walk is 40 minutes far (inner shrine). Along the way, as the gate of the vermilion-lacquered. In recent years as the power spot is popular, is sandwiched between dense trees and.... Should begin with shrines and any 1000 1000 with power spots some of the power is not approved as a shrine. Have posted to the Guidebook, especially power spot and don't think it is, and. National power is Shinto shrines should not even one company.

    When due to the sudden release incident, we did not have any trips, long wild game Center station saw 傳 veneered on the Oakland Club, decided to Lin-when desire to find out. Area 飄 in the rain, but having the bus moves forward progress, the rain seems to be no stopping the Trend. When she went to Prada in the next car, there are many delicious Buckwheat noodles, so decided to fill a 飽 stomach first and then hit the road. Still good and this clocking in, because she also advises to Oakland road near to one hour. Del Carmen port of Oakland community has one "dismounting a horse" stone, take on the road in the future, if not walk slowly, still really difficult Stadium image: port by its beauty. Road of two next is a 顆 顆 high restrict employment things tend to 碩 of FIR, go in shirts does wood in the between of road has kind of Shen felt something and surrender of mood, plus when days rain, participation worship who not more, although so sex quality different, but stub Kyoto Lanshan mountain bamboo compared is too luxury has, seems seems I we can enough alone occupies this moments, land stub gods stub people make Club Med of when empty. Possibly when physical and psychological symptoms Phase when we were not very good, worth comes to Oakland because of the days when fine land and participate in worship, is really too good. Absolute Yes is Club Med back to participate in worship places.

    Approach the long streamers. End is quite steep and eventually becomes a staircase. Should I take 20-30 minutes. Is a Shinto shrine located under the debris. Very crowded the shrine sacred lot can stamp also. 4. pretty hungry would be close. Is on the way back down, but still tight. Good walking shoes are recommended. The feeling of trying to go stroller. The last hug. Was always moist, so watch out for after the rain.

    I went to the GW. Near the shrine, near Kuzuryu Dragon and stairs there to still covered with snow, slide to. Snow shoes, not harsh sense of achievement available. Of nice scenery, cedar trees will be humbled. People quite a lot during the tourist season, the traffic in the parking lot with cars around. We recommend early morning worship.

    Random new year's drive, I visited called casually. Seen at sunrise in the back thinking as I walked the snow from the parking lot, there was walking while looking this way. And non-far abandoning Sunrise, 7 o'clock, I thought maybe I was just rises, from behind a mountain and get. We have good memories.

    During the winter season the last obstacle in front of the shrine. Just the view from the back, and after that achievement is the best. Former zenkou-JI mountain at the entrance was a little off, approaching, and in front of me. I think so go Skate socks and other clothes to bring. Also somehow slippery in the gate, they often slip. Of course, vending machine from the back entrance. I would have a drink there quite rapidly with distance. You'd buy in vending machines, such as socialising.

    I went to 5/3. You want to go look at the photos and headed in the Golden thoughts. There were a lot of people, but staff were very helpful. Way to the shrine is "far away! "And I thought at first. Is that is had to suffer at all. We have the feeling a cold wind and snow in some places at the beginning of May. Cedars are mysterious and beautiful.
