Head deep into the forest and atop Mt. Mitsumine to find Mitsumine Shrine, often described as one of Japan's most beautiful mountain shrines. The serene sanctuary sits 1,102 m (3,615 ft) above sea level, with tall old cedar trees enveloping the surroundings. Find three beautifully decorated areas, which make up the holy place-- the historic, main, and remote worship halls. Find the latter deep in the forest where you can also take in spectacular views of the thick canopy of trees below. By using our Chichibu holiday planning app, you can arrange your visit to Mitsumine Shrine and other attractions in Chichibu.
