easy to get to Haruna Shrine, but takes 20 minutes reach the shrine . The bus to the shrine leaves from Takasaki station which is approximately 45 minutes by Nagano or Hokuriku Shinkansen from Tokyo Station
If you’ve got half a day or more highly recommend this trip. Simple bus ride from main station. Grab a timetable as English help is very limited.
Bus takes about 1 hr. It’s not that far just a slow drive.

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
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

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.
