Visit the Hakone Shrine and Kuzuryu-jinja Shingu Shrine

The Hakone Shrine is situated at the foot of Mount Hakone along the expansive shores of Lake Ashi. Most of the buildings are hidden in the dense and tranquil forest, except for the iconic torii (a red gate found at Japanese Shinto shrines) that stands prominently on the surface of Lake Ashi. This shrine is 10 minutes from Motohakone-ko, one of the boat piers in the area.

The Kuzuryu-jinja Shingu Shrine is part of the Hakone Shrine and dedicated to the nine-headed dragon god that lives in the lake. This shrine is said to bring luck in match making, so many Japanese singles visit here in search of a life-long partner.

    You can't miss the Hakone Shrine when you're in Hakone. But do prepared to get very hot in the sun and possibly long queues too depending on when you go.
