Okuni Shrine (小國神社)

Event

Okuni Shrine is an ancient Shinto shrine in the town of Mori, Shuchi County, Shizuoka Prefecture that was founded over 1,400 years ago; Tokugawa Ieyasu and other leading warlords worshipped here. Along the banks of the Miya River that runs through the Shrine precincts a total of around 1,000 cherry trees (mainly of the Yoshino variety) have been planted, making for spectacular cherry blossom in spring each year. The view of the cherry blossom from the Harai-bashi bridge in front of the Shrine’s entrance is particularly spectacular. The Edo-higan cherry trees in front of the first Torii gate and the weeping cherry trees in front of the Saikan (purification hall) are well worth seeing. The cherry blossom is at its best between late March and early April each year. A “Cherry Blossom Festival” is held in early April, at which the time Okuni Shrine receives large numbers of visitors eager to view the cherry blossom. Toilets and free parking available.

          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.
