When we visited the shrine there were a number of religious activities ongoing, which made the visit more interesting. It is about an average size shrine with a long staircase leading to a little park area.

Shizuoka Sengen Jinja Shrine is unique and we loved to visit there. A complex of three main architectural buildings. The shrine features an extensive collection of artifacts from the Tokugawa Shogunate that ruled Japan for 300 years during the Edo Period.

We went here as part of an organized cruise shore excursion. This is similar to other shrines, peaceful and colorful. You can see the entire area in 30 minutes.

If you like historic architecture you'll find here very interesting. Although the site is not so big, there are many buildings constructed in 19th century full of wood carvings. The decorations are of the taste of Tokugawa shogunate era, like those in Nikko, but I...More
