Hodosan Shrine

Hodosan Shrine

From the opposite side of the river as the station, a 15-minute walk brings you to Hodosan Shrine, awarded one star in the 2011 Michelin Green Guide Japan. The shrine was founded in 110 AD for the guardian deity to ward off fires and thefts. The many elaborate carvings in the colorful rooms are worth seeing. A 5- minute cable car ride from Hodosan Sanroku Station takes you to the top of Mt. Hodo with its many seasonal flowers, such as Japanese allspice, azaleas and winter cherry blossoms. At Hodosan Zoo, you can see Japanese monkeys, deer, sheep and rabbits. The shaved ice of Asami-reizo uses ice made from the naturally pure mountain water of Mt. Hodo.
