Tsukubasan-jinja Shrine enshrines the spirits of Mt. Tsukuba, a holy mountain in the eastern Kanto region. Its mention in 25 of the poems in the Nara period collection of poems the Manyoshu shows that it was well known even then but its history is said to stretch back almost 3,000 years. Tsukuba’s god and goddess Izanagi and Izanami give benefits towards marriages and harmonious unions. Many visitors come to the shrine for the New Year’s Eve and New Year festivals.

Review of Tsukubasan Shrine

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/03/06 Beautiful and quiet
An ancient shrine at the foot of Mount Tsukuba. Legend has it that the site of the shrine has over 3000 years of history. There’s a beautiful main hall and trails that go around the shrine.
Reviewed:2019/06/05 A beautiful place
The shrine itself is beautiful and well maintained. Near the shrine you can take a train to the top of the mountain; a great way to cool off in the middle of summer.
Reviewed:2017/10/23 Worth a visit
Quite a drive to get here but some breathtaking views.
Locals trying to get you to use their car parking was very confusing.
We used the public car park 500 yen. Just a short walk to the shrine...

          Just a stone’s throw from Tokyo, Ibaraki is a coastal prefecture that has mastered juxtapositions, where old shrines meet new scientific discoveries and traditional gardens are frequented by the inventors of some of the newest technology. Head to Mito City's Kairakuen - one of Japan's Three Great Gardens - in spring to experience the cellestial blooming of fantastic cherry blossoms at the annual sakura festival.
