Review of Samukawa Shrine

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/07/19 Very Authentic - beautiful shrine with full of history
This is probably most amazing but under rated shrine near Tokyo.

English translation or notice are limited (none for some area) but beautiful buildings and tranquil set ups are breathtaking.

Reviewed:2017/11/12 Seven, five and three
When I visited here, lots of people were praying for the festival of Seven, Five and Three.
Seven and three years old girls and 5 years old boys were having traditional colourful kimono wear.

Reviewed:2016/05/23 Good cafe and shop nearby
I took my age 4 son here on a train excursion along the Sagami line. While my son couldnt appreciate it, this shrine is very unique in its numerous walking paths and its proximity to the Sagami...

          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.
