Nikko: Futarasan Shrine

Futarasan Jinja (Shrine) consists of a group of temple buildings which are the oldest in Nikko dating back to 1619. The predecessor was almost one thousand years older, dated back to 782 which was founded by Shodo Shonin, the Buddhist monk who introduced Buddhism to Nikko.

The Shrine is dedicated to the Shinto gods or "Kami" of Nikko's three most sacred mountains Mt. Nantai, Mt. Nyoho and Mt. Taro. It is just about 30-minute walk away from Toshogu, so I made my way to Futarasan Jinja after visiting Toshogu.


Typical in any Shinto shrine in Japan, there is always a torii leading the way into the compound of the shrine. This torii is flanked by two lanterns by its side.


As the Shrine houses many national treasures, including two swords, most of the inner areas of the buildings are closed to visitors.


So, I could just roam around at the foyer of the buildings overseeing some other small buildings around the shrine compound.



After hanging around Futarasan Jinja for about an hour, I left through the main gate waving goodbye to the oldest groups of buildings in Nikko dedicated to the Shinto gods.

我說了所有的謊 你全都相信
簡單的我愛你 你卻老不信
你書裡的劇情 我不想上演
因為我喜歡 喜劇收尾
我試過完美放棄 的確很踏實
醒來了 夢散了 你我都走散了
情歌的詞何必押韻 就算我是K歌之王 也不見得把愛情唱得完美
只能說我輸了 也許是你怕了
我們的回憶沒有皺摺 你卻用離開燙下句點
只能說我認了 你的不安贏得你信任
