Kinomiya-jinja Shrine (來宮神社)

Also known as the Kinomiya Myojin and the Kinomiya Dai-Myojin, this ancient Shinto shrine has long served the faithful in Izu and Atami. Legend has it that the shrine was built to house an idol which a fisherman caught in his net in 710. The massive sacred tree on the shrine’s grounds, named Okusu, is a nationally designated Natural Monument; over 2,000 years old, it is the second largest tree in Japan. It is said that circling the trunk once extends one’s life by one year. The shrine’s rest area, where visitors can buy tea, Raifuku sweets, and light meals, is also popular. Closest station: Kinomiya Station.

Reviewed:2021/03/12 Popular shrine that is easily accessible from Atami station
熱海の観光名所の1つにもなっている神社です。樹齢2000年以上と推定されている大きな楠が特徴です。来宮駅が最寄り駅ですが、熱海駅から徒歩で20分程度であること、熱海駅で停車する電車の本数が比較的多いことから、熱海駅からの散策で訪れる人も多くいます。神社周辺にはいくつか駐車場がありますが、休日は必ずと言っていいほど満車になること、道幅が狭いところがいくつかあるため、車で来るのは注意が必要です。

          With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan's largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
