Explore Nikko: Futarasan Shrine



Futarasan Shrine was based in 782 by Shodo Shonin, the Buddhist monk who presented Buddhism to Nikko and who also founded nearby Rinnoji Temple.

Futarasan Shrine is committed to the kami ("Shinto gods") of Nikko's three most sacred mountains Mt. Nantai, Mt. Nyoho and Mt. Taro. Two more Futarasan Shrines stand at the shore of Lake Chuzenji and on the summit of Mount Nantai.

Futarasan Shrine is located 200 meters west of Toshogu, a 30 minute walk or 10 minute bus ride (300 Yen one way, 500 Yen day pass, covered by the Tobu free passes) from Tobu and JR Nikko Stations.
