Futarasan Shrine is a centre of worship located in the Nikko Mountains at Tochigi, Japan. It is famous for Matchmaking shrine. Many visitors come to pray for good luck and success in love. The entrance is free, but if you visit the garden the entrance ($2) is required. I recommend you to visit the garden and drink spring water inside. Or try the fortune telling. The shrine is accessible on foot or by bus from Nikko Station. The walk takes about 45 minutes from Nikko Station along with the pleasant forest-lined roads. Nature beauties and large trees make you relax and refresh the mind. We spent around two hours to walk all the area. It’s very close to the natural forest.

It is said that the entire Utsunomiya is built around the Wakayama Shrine. The shrine is the city center. The shrine is free, but if you want to go in, you have to climb a long staircase. In Japan, the shrine stairs should go on both sides. It is said that the middle is for the gods. The shrine was founded in the first year of the Shenhu Jingyun (767), and the style of the shrine's architectural structure is the right-made style of stone-based wooden structures. The main worship of the gods is the three mountain gods of Nikko: Dajigui, Tianxinji, and Mizhao Gaoyan, collectively known as the Great God of the Second Mountain. In 836, the Great God of the Barren Mountain was given the title of Five Five Downs. Close to the evening shrine, quiet and comfortable. Address: 2-3-12

The two sacred mountain shrines have a high status in Japan. They were built in 767 AD. The main worship of the gods is the three mountain gods of Nikko: Dajigui, Tianxinji, and Miso Gaoyan, because they became in the Kamakura era. The patron saint of the Kanto region was thrived by the devout faith of the shogunate and the tyrannical.
There is the first bird house in Japan, which is good for the shrine gate. This is the oldest style "right to make".
Speaking of the origin of the torii, there is another legend in Shinto. Because of the tempering with the brothers, the Azure God found a cave to hide and use the stone to block the hole. Therefore, there is no sun in the world.
Everyone thought of a way to build a high bracket, put all the cocks on it, let all the cocks scream together, the god of the sky is strange, push the stone to see, those who are hiding The sumo wrestlers immediately seized the opportunity to push the stone away and the world was re-launched. The bracket that placed the cock became the first torii.
After the Tori, it is the shrine's main hall, which is dedicated to the three mountain gods. Here, you can't see the scenes of the Buddhist temple's incense and smog; here, you can't hear the Christian church soothing. The soothing sound of the soul, the communication with the gods, everything is carried out in a soft whisper.
If you also have a heartfelt visit, you can go up and squat twice, clap twice, and squat again and pray for a few seconds. After the prayer, you can gently ring the gongs on the side. Shinto believes that You can get the attention of God.
