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.

Review of Kinomiya Shrine

Reviewed:2018/03/06 Make a wish to the tree!
There is plenty of things to see in this shrine. The lined up torii, carps in the small pond and the old big camphor tree which is over two thousands years, create very spiritual. It was bigger that...
Reviewed:2018/02/15 Lovely shrine
Lovely shrine, although a little too commercialised, with a shop and instagram cutouts for taking pictures. Great to see the 2,000 year old tree and make a wish!

          Shizuoka Main Areas


          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.
