  • I started walking from a large circle at the foot of the hill. The large wheel is 370 m. Mimine Shrine is about 1,000m, so you can climb the mountain path of the tsuzura folding about 700m. It takes about 30 minutes by car, but it takes about two and a half hours to walk slowly to the top of Mimine Shrine. It's a pretty hard climb, but the sense of fulfillment when you get to the top is nothing compared to the climb by car. Beyond the slippery mountain path, if you can see the site of the ryokan, you can go to Mimine Shrine a little more. Shino Torii will be the entrance to Mimine Shrine. It is a viewpoint where you can see the superb view of Okuchichibu. It is a short walk from the main hall of Mimine Shrine. It is the main shrine of the shrine which is said to be a power spot of Kanto. Coupled with the recent shrines and the mishu-in boom, the manners for people who come to visit Mimine Shrine are strict. Please check before you visit.

  • A shrine sits deep in the mountains of Chichibu. It is a shrine with a unique atmosphere, such as a dog dog rather than a mitsu torii or lion. It is famous for being one of the best power spots in the Kanto region, and there are many episodes that have become a turning point in the leap and success of famous people in each field. There are many stories that it was a strange experience after visiting here. It is a shrine where the atmosphere which makes you think that there might be such a thing is felt. It is good to visit, especially when you are challenging something new.
