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.

  • It is a shrine for your well being. The atmosphere of the entire shrine can be solemn and somber mood. Please please try again. I'm sure there are blessings.

  • From the parking lot is through the Torii fro free so can go by car until the last minute on the walk from the parking lot in front of the gate and climb shop sort is fun. Stayed at even on weekdays. Barely a hill climbing car from Gate No 15 minutes and there are views, such as water, trees and rocks are nice to walk, I walked. Still so crowded there you two would write are nokyo-Sho, but had to wait with all my heart, he wrote carefully. Building history can be felt. Staff should have come sooner, but it came close to. I am also going to 御参ri when I came here and renovation work done.
