  • i was there last January with my two grandsons. The view was overwhelming as it sits on the top of the hill. It is located between Gunma PRefecture and Nagano Prefecture.  more »
  • Beautiful location shrine. It’s low key and a bit isolated and not overrun by tourists. Walking up from Karuizawa is a pleasant walk.
  • Lovely shrine near the Usui Pass looktout. Combine both! The shrine sits on the border of Gunma and Nagano, and there is an indicator on the floor. The sacred tree in a quiet corner of the shrine grounds has a hearted-shaped hole which you can see from a certain angle.
