Togakushi Shrine Okusha, Nagano
(4.6/5 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.

  • Back entrance bus stop around the stores are all closed. Amid fluttering snowflakes and most people are not walking 40 minutes, arriving to the inner shrine. In the clean air and good mood now. The Kuzuryu shrine yukigakoi had been.

  • Walk the straight tree-lined road about 30 minutes from the nearest parking lot, but the landscape, is not suffering. Names of streets behind the tree-lined streets and a very helpful staff.

  • 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.
