World Heritage: Futarasan Shrine4.6

Go to this spotGoogle Transit

This shrine adjacent to Toshogu is dedicated to two nearby mountains, Nantai-san ('Male Body Mountain') and Nyoho-san ('Female Peak Mountain'). The path between Toshogu and Futarasan Shrine, lined with cypress trees, is considered a power spot where you can experience positive energy. The energy is supposedly flowing from Toshogu to this shrine, so it is advised to visit these two spots in this order.

The shrine's precincts are full of lucky charms - bamboo grass associated with matters of the heart, round rock bestowing longevity, and loop throwing to improve your luck. There is a sacred spot where you can scoop spring water, which is for drinking or rinsing your accessories to absorb the sacred power. Also, search for the place with a sign 'Takaamahara', because it is the most energetic spot in Nikko.

Go there if you have the chance. It’s right next to Toshogu, but with a fraction of the tourists. Well worth it.

My favorite shrine out of the group! Time seems to fly because everything is so beautiful to look at. I even had the chance to sit in on a shrine demonstration and lecture.

Nice temple beside the Nikko temple and this temple is famous in love.
