If you have visited Japanese Shinto shrines before, there is nothing particularly new to be experienced at Haruna-jinja, but it is a pleasant walk through the wooded ravine to the main shrine buildings at the top. You can also buy o-mikuji (fortune-telling messages) which only...More

This Shrine is out of the way so is not crowded. It is interesting but a little unkeep. I went mainly for the garden, which was not very well maintained. It would be a personal choice whether you travelled there.

The shrine is connected to the mainland by a red bridge. Pretty picturesque and since we had some mist, it made for some interesting pictures. The temple itself is a standard affair, but enjoyable. We visited a lot of shrines and temples and although similar...More

I came here on a quiet day down the road from Lake Haruna, walked through the wooden entrance and up the stone walkway with a mossy wall on one side and a mountain stream on the other. Waterfalls, beautiful trees and many temples, shrines and...More

Haruna Jinja. Japan has no lack of famous jinjas and deras. I must admit I am kind of a shrines and deras fanatic. However I do have an aversion to crowds, and the famous ones are most often than not crowded. Hence the temples and...More

Haruna Shrine is nestled in the mountains. Unfortunately we visited in January and it was very crowded. There were lines of cars from both roads leading into the shrine and very little parking. They were sending 5 people at a time to pray because there...More

Very nice place. And a nice place to go hiking as well. The shrines seem to somehow grow out of the rocks.

Mt. Haruna is located in the mountains s boe prepared for cold and wet weather during the winter months, and possibly snow. As Takasaki-san advised, spring or fall are better seasons to view this attraction.
