Haruna Shrine, Takasaki

Step back into the distant past and visit the ancient Haruna Shrine, built in the sixth century. Sitting about halfway up Mt. Hurana, one of the three mountains of Jomo, the shrine is dedicated to the gods of fire, water, and agriculture. Its main gateway slowly reveals itself as you make your way up hill, gaining an ever-expanding view over the horizon. The gate's east-west orientation results in the sun providing an amazing effect by either shining through it from behind, or by illuminating the structure’s face. Follow paved and dirt paths throughout the shrine to come across various cultural and religious icons.

Red large Torii balanced somehow knew in the Interior of the shrine, so leave the dressed one way, 5 hours from Takasaki station by bus one way 70 minutes, finally looked looked divine. From the bus stop to the main one way 15 minutes short distances, was wrapped in the shrine of trees, rivers, waterfalls and a huge rock, rock, power spot seems to be unexplored. Pretty Street, so could not easily visit shrines. Because it really was a happy and had no choice. I ended up buying is really very much regret and shrine of desire and then feels gentle as I was as a talisman for the fulfillment of. 4/22 Sunday, hours are 11 am mid?? Is certainly a little crowded for holiday hours or in May was little sister for the talismans, amulets, at says "ask for a talisman for the fulfillment of the Shinto priest of the Noh mask with glasses and taking yourself and bring it.

It was the first time a priest who should be serving God is ever come at lot shrine now and my parents ' House is a shrine, but feel bad I'm sure, to say. During it's charms were made in such a bad mood "fulfillment" is prohibited here, and don't say I, to staff were disgusting for the good people want to think. But we don't need anymore. Peas so difficult and I don't need my sister and... And conflict and while I bought. Than one minute Exchange is various conflicts during this period. Stay was scheduled for two hours, but another really dumped flush and tired, and there are also bad and went away. I'm expecting: shocked and devastated.
