There is plenty of things to see in this shrine. The lined up torii, carps in the small pond and the old big camphor tree which is over two thousands years, create very spiritual. It was bigger that I expected. 思っていたよりも広く、見所たくさんありました!ただ土日ということもあり、熱海一混雑していました。鳥居や竹林、鯉が泳いでいたりと雰囲気がとても良かったです。カフェも新しくきれいでしたが、混雑のため利用しませんでした。

Lovely shrine, although a little too commercialised, with a shop and instagram cutouts for taking pictures. Great to see the 2,000 year old tree and make a wish!

Although I have been to loads of shrines and temples all over Japan, I still enjoyed my visit to Kinomiya Jinga. It's very tranquil with few tourists, and it's got lush greenery. They have cute maps/explanation to take at the entrance both in Japanese and...More

Kinomiya Shrine in Atami is a popular tourist destination. It’s also known as one of the most spiritual places in Japan because it’s the home of a 2000+ years old camphor tree. The Shrine is about a 20-minute walk from JR Atami Station. It’s a...More

Kinomiya Shrine is home to a 2,000 year old Camphor tree that was saved from being cut down by a mysterious vision 2,000 years ago. The fragrance of the camphor tree fills the shrine with a soft and delicate smell. Surprisingly, it smells to me...More
