About Hakone Shrine, Hakone
Along the shores of Lake Ashi, at the foot of Mount Hakone is the serene Hakone Shrine. Legend says that the Priest Mangan, who is responsible for establising this shrine, calmed down the nine-headed dragon god that lived in the bottom of Lake Ashi. . The Kuzuryu Shrine is a sub-shrine of the Hakone Shrine, dedicated to the nine-headed dragon god. The Japanese Shinto Shrine was known for good luck for the visiting generals, 1200 years from now. There are three kami or spirits that are worshipped in this shrine, collectively known as Hakone Okami. The shrine today has gained popularity amongst those who wish for power, as well as, women who wish for a good marriage. While the shrine is beautiful at all times throughout the year, seeing in shrouded in mist will leave you completely awestruck.

Hakone Shrine, Hakone Reviews - Write a Review
The temple is quite small and partially under construction. It's very close to the port and one of its Torii (the big red gate) is just beside the lake so it's hard to miss. If you take a pirate cruise, it's only 5-10 minute walk from where you get off. I wouldn't say it's a must-see but you should only come if you have time to spare and haven't been to many Japanese temples.
Beautiful shrine with quite a bit to see. Easy to get there from the bus station by foot. Also has a lake side path.
Peaceful, Beautiful, Quiet Japanese style temple. You can feel the historical vibe.
Magical and spiritual, be responsible and respectful to this religious place. This is not a tourist zoo.
Not extremely exciting but something to see while you are in the area!
