Togakushi Shrine Okusha, Nagano

#2 of 143 in Things to do in Nagano
Must see · Religious Site · Tourist Spot
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.

  • What a great place to hike around. So beautiful nature and peaceful. It is 4 Km. walk, but worth it very much. Nice place to visit in the summer, much cooler then the city, since it is quite high.....  more »
  • Arrived at Nagano 2 days after Typhoon Hagibis. Transport to Togakushi Shrine is easy by bus. There are a numbers of stops leading to some attractions such as Soba restaurant, Ninja museum and Kagami....  more »
  • 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).
