I go there for work almost every two weeks. And yet everytime I go to the pagoda I find it different, whether it is under the snow or surrounded by green foliage during summer.

I suspect this visit was much quieter than it would have been over the summer. It is certainly a slipper walk on the snow and ice, but I love that they permit access for those willing to make the walk. It is beautiful.

We started the walk from Zuishin Mon the entrance gate to the top of Mt Haguro. You will pass by the red bridge called the Shinkyo bridge and waterfall called the suga No taki. Magnificent sights

The shrine itself is nothing special, but the location along the trail to the temple on top of Mt Haguro and being situated among some very tall cedars, just adds something to the picture.

You can arrive from the bottom or taking it in via the walk from the top. It's a good step down to it and back up but well worth it. Need to be fit and have the correct foot wear.

This place is far from the beaten track in the countryside of West Japan. Come here while the foreign tourists still haven't discovered it yet. On a cold November day, we were the only foreign tourists here. The hike to the pagoda is only 10...More

This is located on Mt. Haguro, you can see my other review of it on its corresponding page. The Pagota itself is very beautiful and its fits in perfectly with the towering cedar trees around it. Definitely worth the visit!

Unadorned and enveloped in trees, it would be easy to miss this pagoda if there wasn't a side path to take you to it. For us, that made it even more sublime.

After hiking for a few minutes in Mt Haguro, you will stumble into this magical place. All the cedars around it make it quite a sight. Just imagine having a Japanese pagoda in the middle of Muir Woods.
