Futarasan Jinja - Review

Can’t get enough of Nikko’s remarkable craftsmanship and architecture? The Nikko Futarasan Jinja Shrine is another classic!

Established back in 782, by a Buddhist monk named Shodo Shonin, who also happens to be the pioneer of Buddhism in Japan, this attraction is devoted to the Nikko's three highly worshipped and sacred mountains of the Mount Nantai, the Mount Nyoho and the Mount Taro. In fact, the Shrine derives its name from the alternate name of Mount Nantai – the utmost eminent of the three mountains.

The Nikko Futarasan Jinja Shrine is full of protruding springs, spiritual halls, and deep-rooted holy trees that enhance this place’s Zen element! Walk around and feel every vibe of this attraction for a one-of-its-kind experience.

Futarasan Jinja, Nikko Reviews

  • My favorite shrine out of the group! Time seems to fly because everything is so beautiful to look at. I even had the chance to sit in on a shrine demonstration and lecture.

  • You absolutely must! This shrine and the others within walking distance . . . not to be missed. A great idea for a day trip is Tokyo to Nikko. We left on the bullet train at 8 am, transferred to a local that took roughly 40 minutes to get to Nikko. Along the way, you roll through forest and farming country. You get a real sense of the pace and style of life in non urban Japan. Nikko itself is welcoming, with very good restaurants, some ok shopping. But the main attraction is the Nikko National Park and the shrines. I recommend you walk. It's uphill from Nikko Station, but not too steep. At the top of the hill there's an ancient arched bridge over a rushing stream, then it's up the hill just a bit farther to the shrine area. We saw everything we wanted to see in a day and arrived back in Tokyo in time for a late-ish dinner. Oh - by all means . . . if you have time, hike the gorge. It's the most breathtaking experience we had in Japan. Easy walk, not challenging at all

  • We went here during the new year holidays to get their famous momiji. Highly recommended, just don’t forget to put more clothes during the winter.

  • Very beautiful and peaceful when it’s not too crowded.

  • Rich of history. Everybody will find here what is looking for.
