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.
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!
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.
