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.

  • I think that the splendid shrine makes you feel a solemn history. Emphasis is on a rock face just think while walking along the entrance path to the shrine is a hermit seems may live in. The ambience will becoming tense feeling even just walking along the entrance path. In the form to finally arrive at the shrine and rocks with DW and are being built. I thought so time in the air and great place cosy and come take a look at.

  • The shrine was located in the small valley of Iwao mountain cliff. Omotesando Hills has long since then to prepare for the visit. The shoes may have face too. While watching the scenery slowly climb is recommended. Bus from Takasaki station and ikaho. A day free if the car parking is tight, so mind-blowing.

  • 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.
