Haruna Shrine, Takasaki
(4.7/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Haruna Shrine a centerpiece of your Takasaki vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Takasaki itinerary builder.

  • It is a shrine of the Temple in the 0/500. Haruna Lake through mountain passes and narrow parking lot, walk about 20 minutes over the shrine there are hurdles don't, a little minute spectacular. It was the main building seems to be stuck in the rocks the historic Temple and great things.

  • No parking place as a shrine but very inconvient. Yet, by just using a shop in front of car when you visit keeps. Delicious noodles in front of shops. Is heart is washed as the shrine only pray for prayer, and not awarded products are equipped, and seasonal music festivals and other events, just walking along the entrance path.

  • Great views but is famous as a spot. Winter landscape is fantastic by the way, the cold but ٩ (-˙ ▿ ˙-), women have deep God's edge, so prayers such as marriage, pregnancy, and childbirth are also good. ◡with window is reduced too, I worship at the azalea. Just because of steep slopes, requires attention to pregnant women and older people may be. Even in midsummer, thanks to the trees we can climb relatively cool. In the Middle [bun is eaten by a bridge and wishes come true: it is fun to try, because they are. I [float, soak in the sacred Fortune] or [suikinkutsu], is one of the fun to come here.
