Must see · Religious Site · Tourist Spot
Head deep into the forest and atop Mt. Mitsumine to find Mitsumine Shrine, often described as one of Japan's most beautiful mountain shrines. The serene sanctuary sits 1,102 m (3,615 ft) above sea level, with tall old cedar trees enveloping the surroundings. Find three beautifully decorated areas, which make up the holy place-- the historic, main, and remote worship halls. Find the latter deep in the forest where you can also take in spectacular views of the thick canopy of trees below.
