Hakone Shrine - Review

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

  • I especially love the Torii by the lake. It was a foggy day and the place instantly looked magically eerie. The way to the shrine is quite a climb. It's a normal shrine up there. So be sure to take photos of the Torii by the lake

  • A shrine not completely mobbed by tourists as it is a small distance from the urban areas. The torii on the lake is a great place to take pictures. All the tourists formed an orderly line for their turn.

  • If you want to beat the crowd, come super early. Like pre 7am. There's usually a line to take picture at the Hakone Temple and the lake torii gate so be patient and you might be asked to take someone's picture. Otherwise a very beautiful place to visit and be sure to take a boat ride across the lake as well!

  • Place is really nice itself, go there in the morning or not to beautiful day, when there are no other people. Because honestly, I went one time busy time one time morning. First the "ducks boat" that you can rent and ruin the view, the 100 tourist walking and everywhere and all the noise ruin the magic of the place where it's desertic.

  • Hakone Shrine (箱根神社, Hakone Jinja) stands at the foot of Mount Hakone along the shores of Lake Ashi. The shrine buildings are hidden in the dense forest, but are well advertised by its huge torii gates, one standing prominently in the lake and two others over the main street of Moto-Hakone.
