Nestled in a rather remote peaceful hillside location there is no road access to Kunozan Toshogu Shrine. There are two ways to reach the shrine ascending 1159 stone steps from the bottom of the Kunozan Mt, or by descending on the Nihondaira ropeway. This is...More

I disagree, the climb is NOT an easy one. The stone steps are uneven, steep and can be as high as 10 inches in certain sections. The area was wet due to overnight rain. We noticed many people who simply stopped after the first series...More

We went with a tour group and utilized the ropeway down the mountain to the shrine area. The shrine is an easy climb up stone steps and quite detailed and Japanese. There are great views of the coastline from the ticketing area.

It's only accessible with a cable car (5-minute one way ride costing about $5, running every 15 minutes), unless you are ready to walk up and down 1910 steps from the bottom of the mountain. It's admission fee I believe is about $7. Small shrine...More

It's a good climb up many steps to the top however the climb is worth it. The museum has artefacts dating back to the first shogun. The temple is extremely well maintained and there is a brochure in English available. A shop at the top...More

This shrine is incredibly remote and high up in the mountains. The best way to get here is via the Nihondaira Ropeway. The site is over 400 years old and has been restored to its former beauty.

This shrine is nice, but not the nicest in Japan. People telling it's peaceful were obviously not visiting when crowded. I was there when a lot of Japanese were there, and it was definitely not peaceful! It's a place of historic importance though...
