As the highest worship point of Togakushi Shrine, Okusha serves as a dramatic destination for pilgrims who have undertaken the hike from the base of the village.

Nature calls from the hundred acre woods, refreshing you after the 2 km hike to the shrine honoring Mount Togakushi. Stroll through the avenue of century old cedar trees (cryptomeria japonica) that will take you to the top of the hill, completing your quest of visiting the last shrine of Togakushi.

A traveler, budding travel writer, and amateur author. Writing is my way to redo my amazing journey all over again. I started "Cheating the World" project and with it, I've made two of my annual trips in a form of a book: "Cheating Southern Vietnam", and "Cheating Hong Kong & Macau" (still in Bahasa Indonesia, sorry...). Japan? Of course it's on top of my writing list. It was too good to not be recorded.
