The Hakone Shrine is a Japanese Shinto shrine founded in the Nara period (710-784) by Mangan-Syonin. It enshrines three primary Kami(Gots) known collectively as the Hakone Okimi. Mangan-Syonin was the first Buddhist monk who syncretized Shinto God and Buddha in the Japanese history. After climbing up the stone steps surrounded by many cider trees, you reach in front of the main hall with the holly fresh air.
