Takinoo-jinja Shrine


About a kilometer from Futarasan-jinja Shrine stands Takinoo-jinja Shrine, standing quietly amid the cedar trees. The atmospheric Takinoo-jinja is a popular place to pray for a successful marriage, pregnancy or birth, but people also come in search of more general luck. According to the legend, if you throw a coin through the small hole atop the torii gate at the entrance, you’ll be blessed with good fortune—but you only get three tries, so aim carefully.

How to get there:
5 minutes from Nikko Station or Tobu-Nikko Station by World Heritage Tour bus to Hotel Seikoen-mae bus stop, then a 25-minute walk.
