Hakone-jinja Shrine

Hakone-jinja Shrine

Hakone Shrine was established in the first year of the Tenpyo Hoji era (757) in the Nara period. It is an old shrine that celebrated its 1261th anniversary.
During the Kamakura period, Minamoto no Yoritomo deeply believed in the shrine and created the custom of pilgrimage to two places. It prospered as a shrine and as a sacred place for Shugen. In modern times, along with the development of the Hakone Road, it became a sacred place for the common people's beliefs. As a god of high divine virtue, worship of Mt. Hakone has become even more popular. On both sides of the approach leading from the torii gate of peace on the shores of Lake Ashinoko to the main shrine, rows of old cedar trees that are over 600 to 800 years old stand out, creating a solemn and vermillion-lacquered Gongen-zukuri style. Behind the shrine is a pure forest of Himeshara, a prefectural natural monument, and you can see the wonderful reflection of the vermilion torii gate of peace and the sacred Mt. It is a shrine embraced by nature.
In addition, Kuzuryu Shrine (Shingu/Main Shrine), a subordinate shrine, is deeply worshiped as a god of prosperous good luck, protection of money, prosperous business, and marriage. Many pilgrims from all over the country come to visit the festival.
