Come and take a walk around the sacred Kinomiya Shrine, a Shinto shrine nestled in an area of dense woodland. Dedicated to the Shinto god of fortune and luck, the shrine centers around a large camphor tree, believed to be more than 2000 years old. Pilgrims believe that one walk around the tree's 24 m (78 ft) round trunk will extend their life by one year, as well as aiding recovery from sickness. Pass around the sacred tree, and admire its natural majesty, which has inspired so many stories and positive beliefs.

Kinomiya Shrine Reviews
パワースポットとしても人気らしく、たくさんの方で賑わっていた。 お土産に買った麦こがしのクッキー他、グレード高く美味しかった。 more »It seemed to be popular as a power spot, and it was crowded with a lot of people. The wheat rice cookies i bought as a souvenir were high grade and delicious.
先週1歳の我が子を連れて行きました。 新婚旅行で行った内の1つの場所でもあり想い出深いので楽しみにしていましたが、私達の模範になるべき中高年の方々のマナーの悪さに本当にがっかりしました。 行事の無い夜は人も少なくライトアップがキレイで良かったです。 明るい時にも参拝したいね、と話して翌日10時頃行きました。 神社で掃除をしていた人が「おはようございます！奥の御神木見に行かれましたか？」と気持ち良く... more »I took my one-year-old child with me last week. It was one of the places i went on our honeymoon, and i was looking forward to it because it was a memorable place, but I was really disappointed by the bad manners of middle-aged and older people who should be our example. There were few people at night without the event, and the light-up was beautiful and good. I went there around ten o'clock the next day when I was bright.

When we take a commemorative photo in front of the god tree, a group of obasans led by a tour guide will come later, and some people will step forward and stop in front of us without waiting for the talk of the guide to finish. I was looking around in the wind listening to the tour guide, so I said, "Excuse me, can you go down a little bit because I'm taking pictures?" but i ignored it. In addition, the tour guide reacted to our words and looked at here, but he looked away as if there was nothing to note about the obasans, and began to talk with some of the obasans. Further...
Small place, finished in an hour, but worth to pay it a visit for the aged big trees and heritage. Suggest taking a train for only one stop from Atami station and walk 5 minutes. It’s not much around this spot unlike other Japanese temples having snakes or shops around.
Nice place to visit and pray. There is a very old tree...
