Yuzawa Jinja shrine is a shrine with many kinds in Japan, and it is the same as the traditional culture, and it worships its own omikami, and Amaterasu omikami is the most worshipped omikami, but this Koji is different from Tokyo.
Yuzawa Shrine is right next to the Daiichi Taki Honkan, and you will surely pass on the way to Jigokudani. According to legend, it was founded by Takimoto Kinzo, the founder of the Daiichi Taki Honkan in 1858. Going through the red torii, all the way up the stairs, you will reach Yuzawa Shrine at the end. The shrine is enshrined by the Emperor Oshin, and Takimoto Kinzo is also a god of worship under the name "Takigawa No Yumoto." There is a monument to Takimoto Kinzo on the side.
Compared to the shrines and temples we saw in Kyoto and other places, it is not so popular. A particularly quiet shrine is certainly not a tourist hotspot. After soaking in the hot springs, you are attracted to walk out.
Noboribetsu's name comes from the ancient Ainu word "ヌプルペッ", which means white turbid river; Jigokudani is the source of Noboribetsu Onsen and the most famous scenic spot in Noboribetsu Onsen. The volcanic landscape is extremely magnificent.
Stopped by on the way to Jigokudani, right next to the park. The scenery of the shrine is pretty good, but there is no need to go there specially. Maybe it was earlier, and the shrine did not open. The Omori bought in the shrine is very interesting. It's probably autumn, so the scenery is very good. Hokkaido in October is really beautiful! The smoke of Jigokudani can be seen in the nearby creek, and you can reach Jigokudani with a few more steps. (Hell Valley is worth a visit) Yes, I recommend Hokkaido limited corn juice, which is available in vending machines and supermarkets!
Yuzawa Shrine was decided temporarily on the way to Jigokudani. Because it is not far from Jigokudani, there is a strong smell of sulfur. It is a scenic spot on the way, and there are few tourists. This situation is non-stop The presumptuous concave shape.
From Noboribetsu town to Jigokudani, you will pass Yuzawa Shrine first, and you need to climb long steps, which is really tiring. After going up, it should be said that there is no scenery at all, just a shrine, surrounded by tall trees, so you can't feel the bold mood of climbing up and looking into the distance. Therefore, for tourists who do not visit the shrine, this is a spot that can be ignored. On the contrary, the few big ghosts under the shrine are very characteristic of Noboribetsu. After all, this is the place where Hell Valley must pass.
