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
Amazing place! The temple is up the hill and another gate is near the lake. We walked around the temple alongside with the lake and it is perfectly peaceful.
Lake Ashi is beautiful and peaceful. Hakone Shrine is also like the pictures portray it. You will have to wait “in line” to take your picture, but people tend to be pretty respectful about it. Like any good things in life, the early bird gets the worm
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!
