(4.4/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Sited at the foot of a mountain, Suwa Shrine remains one of the oldest houses of worship in Japan. Pay special attention to the gate resting on four pillars made from firs, replaced every seven years during the Onbashira Festival. The six buildings on the shrine grounds are designated important cultural property, while the complex's repository exhibits historical treasures, such as various written documents from the imperial family and major military commanders.

  • 諏訪大社是在全國擁有超過一萬座分社的日本最古老神社之一。有上諏訪的上社、下諏訪的下社,分別供奉著武神、農耕神、狩獵神、風神,深受信徒崇拜。我們到的當天正好有幼兒禮在進行,多長知識。 
  • Around the harumiya autumn Palace on the evening of the first day of the stay in Shimo-Suwa, and the next day was before go through the shrine main shrine. Hotel, below, or above, among the staff out and easy to understand, and ramble in the set is recommended. And to worship at the shrine was only because so much time was but didn't much like missing even one day to sightsee around the temple as well as the vast. If you go by car, parking was maintained, but before the note difficult to understand just the Palace. It was a great shrine that combines history and distinctive character.

  • Stay in Tateshina, in one of the first Japan's oldest shrine went under the shrine Temple of Suwa Taisha Shrine in the Shinano country ichi-no-miya and harumiya. Though rife with the headquarters of the Suwa shrine, a solemn atmosphere. Kagura, the sanctuary in left and right at the back, you will feel sacred and divine breath. Parked at the parking lot of the temple fall, old post road "ageo" harumiya until round 2. I walked 5 Km away. Autumn shrine, harumiya between was road feel old.
