This shrine is incredibly remote and high up in the mountains. The best way to get here is via the Nihondaira Ropeway. The site is over 400 years old and has been restored to its former beauty.

This shrine is nice, but not the nicest in Japan. People telling it's peaceful were obviously not visiting when crowded. I was there when a lot of Japanese were there, and it was definitely not peaceful! It's a place of historic importance though...

Well worth the trip! Amazing scenery and photo ops. Highly recommend taking the Nihondaria Ropeway route. Number 41 bus took us straight there from Shizuoka Station!

We took the stairs up as the cable car was not working. The climb is amazing. Takes about 20 minutes. The shrine is beautiful and peaceful. A great place to visit. The English audio guide is very useful if you want to know more.

I ventured up to Nihondaira to get the ropeway to kunozan shrine. The shrine is stunning, and I spent a long time wondering around all of the structures taking in the beauty. There is also a museum which shows the shoguns that were there. From...More
