We had our first shrine visit of 2019 in this temple. There were so many people but it seems that was to be expected. There were policemen and other people there to organize the long lines for the first day of the year. People camp out as early as midnight to get a good spot to watch the first sunrise as well.

This is a great place for a day trip and the evening drums and prayers at sunset (only over loudspeaker) add to the ambience of a real temple. The scenery is stunning and on a clear day you can see Mt Fuji from the summit.

It’s a temple that you will pass by if you are heading to the top of takaosan.
Quite interesting and you can ask for your fortune, also do a few things to purify your soul !

Make sure to stop by and relax yourself here !
