Togakushi Shrine Okusha, Nagano

4.5
Head up the foot of the mountain to find a number of sacred places when exploring Togakushi Shrine Okusha. Visit the five separate Shinto shrines in three different shrine areas--known as the lower, middle, and upper--taking the time to walk between each of them, absorbing the relaxing atmosphere of the woodland, and learning about the stories behind the shrines as you go. With each of the three shrine areas located about 2 km (1.2 mi) apart, the walk between them can be tough, but richly rewarding for those able and willing. Plan my trip to Nagano with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • Free parking near Togakushi Shrine Okusha? I stopped at The Gate, went through the Shinto gate from the torii gate, and walked along the cedar tree-lined approach, which is hundreds of years old, and reached Okusha and Kowloon Sha in 4-50 minutes. The last 400 meters are quite a slope and 200 steps are quite body-answered. A majestic Okusha, beautiful autumn leaves, and a steep Togakushi mountain range. Sometimes I felt it was important to look at myself.

  • The service was also clearly stated in the tour company's guide, and the service was scheduled on the homepage. However, there is no explanation of the reason of the sudden suspension on the day, of course. No matter how crowded you are, it is recommended to use your own car. If you really want to use the shuttle bus, check with the tourist office the day before. I'm a little bad foot, but the weather was good on the day, so I'm sorry!

  • Pretty nice. The stroll there, however is breathtaking.
  • Very beautiful setting. The walk up is well worth. I recommend to start your hike from the Chusha shrine and follow one of the trails up If you want to leave the beaten track a bit, come back through the botanical garden and along the Kagamiike pond (great view).
