Step back into the distant past and visit the ancient Haruna Shrine, built in the sixth century. Sitting about halfway up Mt. Hurana, one of the three mountains of Jomo, the shrine is dedicated to the gods of fire, water, and agriculture. Its main gateway slowly reveals itself as you make your way up hill, gaining an ever-expanding view over the horizon. The gate's east-west orientation results in the sun providing an amazing effect by either shining through it from behind, or by illuminating the structure’s face. Follow paved and dirt paths throughout the shrine to come across various cultural and religious icons.

Haruna Shrine Reviews
駐車場からは斜面を登っていくので、足の悪い人やお年寄りにはきついかもしれません。参道の途中にあるおみくじがオススメ。水にひたすと文字が浮き出るしくみです。水琴窟も幻想的。冬季は参道も凍るので、初夏から秋がオススメです。 more »Because it climbs the slope from the parking lot, it might be hard for the person with bad feet and the elderly person. I recommend the lottery in the middle of the approach. It is a mechanism that the character comes out when soaking in water. The water koto caves are also fantastic. In winter, the approach freezes, so we recommend autumn from early summer.
1400年以上の歴史があるという榛名神社に行ってきました。榛名川に沿うように続く参道の周りが森に囲まれ、多くに巨石が見られました。所々にパワースポットがあるということを聞きいていましたので、そのせいかシンとして張り詰めた空気を感じ心が洗われるように感じました。 隋神門を入り橋を渡るとなんだか空気が変わったようでひんやりとしてきました。昔から修験者の霊場として名高く、最近では若い人にもパワースポット... more »I went to Haruna Shrine, which has a history of more than 1400 years. The approach along the Haruna River was surrounded by forests, and many boulders were seen. I had heard that there were power spots in some places, so I felt the air that was tense as shin and felt that my mind was washed away. When I entered the gate and crossed the bridge, the air seemed to have changed somehow, and it became cool. It is famous as a spiritual place of the practitioner for a long time, and seems to be popular as a power spot for young people recently. The place named the saddle hanging rock which protruded the rock was reinforced so as not to collapse. After a while, I saw a cave called Mizukagura. When the sound of shinsui playing is heard by two people putting the ear on the bamboo tube, the edge might be connected by the power, and it might be popular with lovers. There was a row mountain when passing the three-story pagoda and torii and crossing the shinbashi bridge. It's a powerful power spot. Then, a thin, beautiful waterfall was seen when going while seeing the east face road and the fountain of the year. Bottled child
Probably one of my absolute favourite Shinto Shrines to visit though it is quite far from Takasaki Station and you don't want to miss the bus ride back. When you go, take special notice of all the detailed wooden carvings.
Beautiful walk through nature with shrines tucked into the mountains. I’ve never seen anything like it before, wonderful experience.
