I woke up early at 5 am to visit Kusuhara Jingu (Kusuhara Shrine) before departs for temples.
It’s a power spot.
This Shrine was built in 1890 to shrine the first emperor, Jinmu Tennoh (Emperor Jinmu).
This street leads straight to the shrine; therefore, this is Omotesando (Main Street to the Shrine) for Kashihara Jingu.
It looks different from Omotesando in Tokyo.
Finally, reached to the main building!
It’s so quiet and peaceful in the morning.
I returned to hotel and went to take my breakfast.
I was hungry.
This mountain often appears in Japanese poem, Manyo.
I need to be fit to visit this temple because there are many stairs!
Yes, climbing these stairs is a good exercise.
Today, we had obento (packed lunch) for lunch.
This is front of gate with the name of mountain.
This temple is for victory; in 880, Buddhist Priest cured Seiwa Tennoh (Emperor Seiwa) by defeating illness.
These Daruma successfully made a wish come true.
This is the last temple of the day.
We can look down this Mt. Fuji! hahaha
This hotel is part of Fruit Flower Patk.
The exterior of hotel is very western, but a room is Japanese style with futons.
