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.

I think most people go for the tree. Is it 2,000 years old? Cant be sure but I assume they counted the rings on part that has broken off. Even if not, it is a wonderful sight and my plan to go...

          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.
