A hidden gem, this complex of temples and shrines nestled under ancient cedars on the mountainside is a really atmospheric oasis of tranquility. Every visitor I have brought here has fallen in love with the place and are surprised it is not more famous (my last guests from Italy thought it worthy of UNESCO world heritage status!) and crowded (often no more than a handful of visitors when I go there). I honestly believe it is one of the best places to visit in Kanagawa. Be aware that there are a lot of steps, especially a very long steep flight up the mountainside if you want to go up to the small temple right at the top of the complex (in my opinion really not worth it unless you enjoy the exercise).

Beautiful, quiet and not crowded at all... Very long stairway to the highest Temple but we'll worth it
