Togakushi Shrine Okusha, Nagano

4.5
Head up the foot of the mountain to find a number of sacred places when exploring Togakushi Shrine Okusha. Visit the five separate Shinto shrines in three different shrine areas--known as the lower, middle, and upper--taking the time to walk between each of them, absorbing the relaxing atmosphere of the woodland, and learning about the stories behind the shrines as you go. With each of the three shrine areas located about 2 km (1.2 mi) apart, the walk between them can be tough, but richly rewarding for those able and willing. Plan my trip to Nagano with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • After retiring, I visited a senior's house where I fell in love with Togakushi and moved to the house, and I understood the reason why I fell in love with Togakushi Shrine, Kagamiike, a unique coffee shop, soba, and so on.

  • I visited in the middle of October last year. The car is parked in the parking lot of Nakasha Daitorii, and it walks to Okusha. There was a distance from Nakasha to Okusha Daitorii more than I thought, and it began to rain on the way, too and it was considerably hard. Not only is it flat, but there is also a rock. I was still good going, but i was even more tired on the return trip. We used a temporary shuttle bus to get back on the road. Because it was a one-day ride ticket, I felt that I was able to make effective use of time and physical strength if I checked it in advance, such as using the outbound. Because the autumn leaves of this year seem to run on Saturdays and Sundays and holidays (500 this year), if you are interested, we recommend that you check in advance.

  • Pretty nice. The stroll there, however is breathtaking.
  • Very beautiful setting. The walk up is well worth. I recommend to start your hike from the Chusha shrine and follow one of the trails up If you want to leave the beaten track a bit, come back through the botanical garden and along the Kagamiike pond (great view).
