Hakone-jinja Shrine箱根神社


Since ancient times, this shrine has been patronized by generations of military commanders who came to pray for the earnest realization of their wishes during battle. This shrine is said to be one of the best power spots in the Kanto region where one can “conquer a state when Hakone has your back”. The deity of love, Kuzuryu’s newly constructed shrine is also next to Hakone Shrine. Get off the Izu Hakone bus at “Moto-Hakone” or otherwise get off the Hakone Tosan bus at “Moto-Hakone Port” and the temple is a 10- minute walk away.

Review of Hakone Shrine / Kuzuryu Shrine Singu

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/11/22 Renovations on the main shrine.
Very beautiful during the autumn. Long walk up the stairs to the main shrine. Currently, renovations on the main shrine. Right side of the shrine is a very old cedar tree with a big corroded hole...
Reviewed:2018/11/07 A quintessential photo site of Hakone
The red Tori gate by the lake is probably the most photographed Tori gate in Hakone.

The Tori gate is easily accessible from the temple car park by going down 2 flights of steps or 10 minutes walk...
Reviewed:2018/11/07 Renovations
There are renovations going on at the moment, so couldn’t get the full impact of the shrine as it was under tarpaulin in some places. Also a lot of steps to climb to get to it. But we enjoyed looking...

          Kanagawa Main Areas


          Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo's most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
